For anyone who is either sport mad, mermaid mad or just loves watching a competitive sport then the Merlympics is for you.
We saw a BBC news announcement earlier in the year about the UK being chosen to host the 2018 Merlympics and have been dying to be involved ever since!
Somebody has come up with the idea of having a ‘Mermaid Olympics’. There are so many people who dream of becoming a mermaid that this is an absolutely brilliant idea!
There are teams from all over the world competing in various events to become the ultimate mermaid or merman. You can swim 30% faster with a mermaid tail, it’s amazing what you find out when you become a little obsessed with an event.
We are proud sponsors of the Reroom Trophy for one of the winners and each winner will receive a Reroom goody bag (we won’t reveal the contents of but needless to say they will be Mermazing!)
The event is being organised by Finsplash and the Mayim Mermaid Academy who also have training courses on how to swim like a mermaid or merman. Some of their previous graduates are a part of this event and it promises to be a must watch, covered by national TV channels.
There is history to this event, it was first held in Germany in 2015 established by the International Mermaid Swimming Instructors Association. @IMSIA. I cannot believe I didn’t know this existed!
It is being held on Sunday 19th August in Dorset. If you can’t bag a ticket to be there then it is a must watch on TV. We’ll get the details and let you know exactly where and when nearer the time! Get your fins at the ready for a fun filled, splashing time!
