Space and gravity challenge him, and like good Scorpio he accepts the proposal. The triumph consecrates him with a figure, with an incredible trick, because he was born to amaze. With us, from Russia to the world, the Magnificent DIMITRY POLITOV.
Dimitry, what motivated you to approach the Pole Sport?
The video of Remi Martin.
How would you define yourself in relation to the art you practice?
I am the extreme part of our culture.
How is your life outside of sport?
It’s not empty, there is my family, my friends and my hobbies.
What were the best moments of your artistic career?
The best moment is when people tell me their impressions after the performing act, especially if the impression was good.
What do you inspire to prepare your choreography?
For my acts, i take inspiration from people around me, from mine and their lifes.
According to your experience, what are the benefits that the discipline of Pole Sport brings to the athletes who practice it?
First of all the emotions, the best benefit ever, but for someone it can be bodyshape, or new skill like strength, flexibility, acrobatics and etc., selfexpression, a lot of new friends and adventures for sure.
How do you perceive the development of the Pole discipline in Russia?
I think it’s getting better year after year, thanks to incredible athletes and artists who inspire each other.
With what other disciplines do you complement this activity?
Besides pole i am learning krump discipline which helps me to bring some new vibe to the industry, when two different cultures meet it s always an incredible thing which brings unexpectable result.
What are your next events in your schedule?
There r lots of workshops and competitions for this and following year in Europe and Asia that it will take pretty much time to count. Talking about competitions where i don´t judge, but compete i may take a lil break after my success at IPC 2018 untill i know what i want to tell to the audience.
Any phrase identify you?
“Staying hungry till death.”
A message that you want to leave us?
Train safe and enjoy the process more than result 😉
