Love Letter to the Baton Twirlers of Japan

August 19th, 2011 · No Comments · Baton Competitions and Contests, Baton Twirlers and Majorettes Around The World, Videos

The baton twirling athletes and coaches from Japan were very missed at the recent WBTF International Cup Championships. This touching video from Jason Lee captures the sentiments and warmth that so many feel toward the Japanese baton twirling community.

In the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan earlier this year, the qualifying competition to select twirling athletes to represent Japan was not held. Japan has a long tradition of sending top contenders to international baton competitions and the country has produced numerous world champions. We are all eager for the return of twirling athletes from the Japan Sport Baton Association to the international competitive circuit in 2012.

Thank you to Jason Lee for sharing the Youtube video.
