DOGTAG is well known for covering extreme sports from ultramarathon running in events like the Marathon des Sables and downhill mountain biking in events like the Megavalanche. But it’s not just the hairy, extreme sports that we cover, we also cover gymnastic sports of all sorts, sports that involve some pretty extreme moves in their own right. This year we had teams of young women and men competing in the USASF Cheerleading World Championships in Las Vegas and one of those teams was Unity Allstars Royal. Here are some words from the team manager:
"Unity Allstars Royal was the first UK team ever to compete at the USASF Worlds in the US club division, which happens to be one of the most competitive in the world with many super-talented and highly experienced teams competing. The team consisted of 26 athletes aged between 12-18 years of age, who competed in the Senior Medium Co-Ed level 5 division. They performed an almost faultless routine and finished 15th in the world, an amazing achievement, because the team has only been working together since September. Thank you to DOGTAG for insuring the team and making the effort to understand what the sport involved so that we could get cover. It was great to know the athletes had the right cover in place and the process was so easy."
