UK: Parkour als offiziell anerkannte Sportart

The UK has become the first country in the world to officially recognise Parkour/Freerunning as a sport, after the Home Country Sports Councils approved Parkour UK’s application for recognition of the sport and the National Governing Body.

The recognition of Parkour/Freerunning as a sport & Parkour UK as the National Governing Body (NGB) by the Home Country Sports Councils – Sport England, Sport Wales, sportscotland, Sport Northern Ireland and UK Sport follows completion of the UK recognition process by Parkour UK.

Parkour UK began the formal recognition process in March 2013, with the pre application for recognition approved in March 2014. The full application for recognition was submitted in August 2015 and was recommended for approval by the UK Recognition Panel in Dec 2015. During 2016 the Boards of the Home Country Sports Councils approved the full application for recognition, with the final confirmation of recognition being confirmed in October 2016.

 


Vor ~zwei Jahren dachte ich eigentlich, dass das Thema in den UK schon gegessen und eingetütet wurde... hat sich aber dann doch noch gezogen, bis wohl alles förmlich abgesegnet wurde.

Damals hieß es noch, dass Parkour die weltweit erste anerkannte non-competitive Sportart ist... bin gespannt ob es dabei geblieben ist :]

Jedenfalls vermute ich, dass man wieder ein Stück weit in die Zukunft schauen kann damit - besonders interessant sind in dem Aspekt die staatlichen Fördertöpfe für Sportarten

Quote

Experts have voiced concerns over safety as Parkour, the daredevil pursuit of climbing and jumping over buildings, is set to become an official sport which could be taught in schools. [...] Chris McGovern, chair of Campaign for Real Education and a former Downing Street adviser, said that making parkour an official sport is a "barmy idea" which many parents will be "alarmed" by.
