Today the competition began! There were 19 prequalified jumpers, including 3 Five Ten Athletes: Miles Dasher and Julian Boulle and me. For the other 15 slots, they had 2 rounds of pre-qualifiers today for a total of 34 competitors.  After the 2 qualifying rounds, we had the first round of the finals.  We got super lucky with the weather here in Istanbul today, and we were able to jump non-stop from 11-1900!  It is super fun jumping here; when we land all the Turkish kids run up to us to give us high-fives :) It makes me happy to see that, not only are we having a ton of fun, all the spectators are too. 

I think it’s important to mention that my boyfriend told me if I win best overall female in the ProBASE competitions, he will get me a puppy!!! Needless to say- I am very motivated :)
