Written by Vertical Wise

Breaking stereotypes and challenging conventional beauty standards, a brave Greek woman recently participated in the Plus Size Pole Competition for the very first time. Despite facing criticism and negativity, she courageously took the stage, defying societal expectations and showcasing the incredible strength, skill, and grace of plus-size athletes. Read on to learn more about her inspiring story and how she is paving the way for a more inclusive and diverse pole fitness community.

We were awed at the HPSF creation, got excited about the Pole Theater competition in Greece and also felt proud of our athletes in the first-ever Pole Art Greece along with our first-ever junior in an international Pole Art Competition.

This time Dimitra Kourmatzi for the first time in Greece’s pole dancing history will represent our country in the first European plus-size pole dancing competition and specifically Kick Ass Curves, which will take place in England on the 24th of March 2019.

Being a plus-size pole competitor has its challenges as pole remains a tough sport! This is the reasoning behind the creation of specialized competitions.

What did Dimitra say?

I’m exited that there’s a platform that includes that which is different. I only wish that all aspects of day to day life could include such differences so that everyone could do what they wanted how they wanted to in life. Besides the best things in life are those that deviate from the norm – sugar and spice and everything nice . After all with loads of hard work a ton of strength and a large dose of soul power everything is doable

Pole dancing is a sport that requires strength, flexibility, and dedication. It is a form of self-expression that empowers individuals to push beyond their perceived limits and discover new levels of physical and mental strength.

The story of the first Greek participation in the Plus Size Pole competition is a testament to the inclusive nature of this sport. It sends a message to all those who have ever felt excluded because of their size or shape that they too can pursue their dreams and passions.

We are proud to share this inspiring story and encourage everyone to embrace their uniqueness and find their own path to success. So, whether you’re a seasoned pole dancer or a beginner, remember that anything is possible with hard work and determination. Keep pushing, keep striving, and most importantly, keep dancing!

Competition results: Dimitra’s participation in the Plus Size Pole competition marked a historic moment for Greece. Not only was she the first Greek athlete to compete in this event, but she also made history by placing third in the competition. Dimitra’s success shattered stereotypes and showed that pole dancing is a sport for all body types and sizes. Her dedication, hard work, and talent have inspired many to rethink their preconceived notions about what a pole dancer should look like. Dimitra’s achievement is a testament to the power of perseverance, passion, and self-belief.
