Napoli Aquatica 2011 hosted many initiatives related to the Discus. First place of importance goes certainly to the championship but another important event has been the Second NaQ World Discus Congress.
This initiative has been once again a source of pride for all of us working within the event. This year the number of the participants has widened and in addition to the Contest judges, other international prominent exponent of the Discus have accepted our invitation.
The congress was attended, as club representative or as undisputed expert of Discus, by exponents from the following countries:
- HONG KONG;
- REPUBBLICA CECA;
The topics under discussion are the categorization and the evaluation system in a Discus Show. All the new members signed an addendum to the document drawn up last year, where they accept the categorization discussed at the first congress. The exponents of Taiwan and Hong Kong have signed the document with the suggestion of reintegrating the Pigeon and Red Turquoise categories.
The work of the Congress then went ahead with the analysis of the criteria that an evaluation system should use for a complete and accurate judgment. The discussion was enriched with different opinions that have given us important insights according to which we can organize the next congress and involve more and more protagonists of the Discus world in an unique project that should become more institutionalized with the help of all the countries of the globe. NaQ since its inception has decided to build a championship based on shared rules and not simply chosen by the organizers, in order to create a more credible championship acceptable by all.
For this reason, as it has been done last year, NaQ will work to translate into concrete terms, the choices that the Congress has suggested, as well as the adoption of the decided categories in the first Congress.
