Alec Wolzen, Sam Deluca, and Lucas Harralson all also competed in the event. Sam Deluca took 1st place in the Best Trick event. Here is what Sam said about the competition…

“There’s a lot of cool people in that community, and honestly, hanging out with all of them is easily my favorite part of competing in this event. The competition itself, I felt, was run much better this year than years passed. The set up was more interesting and in a bigger space, and I felt that the speed, skill, and freestyle formats were all improved upon from my previous attendances. One thing I don’t really like about this event is that the higher ups at the SPF PK Gym are all gymnastics businessmen. And so I always get an uncomfortable feeling from the event itself. However, I really do like the actual PK community out there, and there’s no shortage of friendly vibes from the Parkour practitioners. As far as the competition went, I achieved the “Sickest Trick” award, and got a pretty good score in freestyle. Outside of the competition, there was an awesome after party and lots of fun jamming at ASU. One note that I feel is pretty interesting is that even smaller competitions are starting to get some fairly high level attendance.” – Sam Deluca

Get this. FiM coach-in-training Lucas Harralson actually met his long-lost niece at the event. WOW

Lucas said “The day of the competition at Scottsdale was the first time I ever met my niece Rose. She was born when I was seven years old, my oldest brothers daughter.”
