The Figure category as we know it in Australia is in a lot of cases very different to the Figure category overseas. The primary difference is in the fact that overseas the format is generally 2 rounds consisting of a T-Walk and the Symmetry poses, but no mandatory poses.
With so many Australian competitors about to head overseas for world championships, I thought I’d just put together quick comparison of some of the differences between Australian and International Figure.
Starting with ANB and their overseas affiliate: UFE
The first vid goes through the technicalities of the 2 federations and the figure categories on offer by each, the 2nd vid I do a walk through of the UFE Figure posing and give a few tips and pointers on what the judges are looking for!
T-Walk (apologies fo rthe sound quality!)
