What are the Eurogames and what is special about them?
The EuroGames, which took place from 18-20 August in Copenhagen (Denmark) and Malmö (Sweden), is an LGBTIQ+ inclusive sporting event with 22 different sporting disciplines. These include badminton, field hockey, figure skating, soccer, swimming and triathlon. In another sport, ballroom dancing, Grzegorz and I participated.
The principle of the EuroGames is that everyone can participate, regardless of gender, age, sexual identity or physical ability.
Similar to traditional dance competitions, couples compete against each other in various disciplines in ballroom dancing: Standard, Latin, Ten Dances, Show Dancing, and Hand Guidance. However, the peculiarity was that same-sex as well as non-binary couples also participated, like us. We are glad that there is such a platform that allows people like us to pursue our passion.
