In 2013 Yentel Caers participated in his first PWA Freestyle event. 10 years later Yentel won his second Freestyle World Champion title, after 2019.
But the 28 year-old Belgian made it exciting until the end. Coming to the event in Sylt, with a 1st place from Fuerteventura, he was the favorite to win the title. But a tough first round draw saw Yentel losing against Lennart Neubauer, the eventual winner of the event.
But Yentel Caers stormed through the double elimination and finished 2nd in the end. “I lost out in the single, so I had a lot of work to do in the double. I did 8 heats in a row. It was tough but I also enjoyed the comeback,” Yentel said.
I am over the moon! Having my second world title is something special. I can not be more stoked about my year. Yentel Caers
