A man wins an international pole event!

For the first time in an international pole competition (although there was Mr Pole Fitness UK 2009 a month or so ago), they’ve finally allowed guys to compete (albeit in their own male category)

The winner was Dave Kahl from Australia, and it’s great to see finally, a greater recognition of men in pole dancing competitions.

We’re still a long way off of course from an effective balance between men and women on the pole, but at least these first steps are getting there 🙂
