Keem Martinez UK won 2nd Place at Budapest World Pole Sport and Fitness Championships - World Pole Dance 2011
With his unique performance dressed with his two legs tied together as a Mermaid
After his first performance where there the music failed at 1 minute 20 seconds he had the opportunity to dance and perform again – he took up that challenge dispite continuing with his performance with no music but just to the standing ovation claps and cheers of his name.
He was nervous that he wouldn’t have the energy to do it for a second time and would the music work again too?? It did, and his more relaxed performance won him second place – with the winner being Evengy Greshilov from Russia
