Estonian slackliner builds his own training ground

Slackliner builds his own training ground

Location: Laadi, Estonia

Jaan Roose had always wanted to construct

his own slackline facilities

but never had the opportunity

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SLACKLINE ATHLETE, JAAN ROOSE, SAYING:"I have a lot of time because I lost all my jobs, like all my shows. I do slackline performances usually and those take a lot of time for me. So now it feels like finally I can train, build and I can prepare myself for the future."

Since lockdown began

Roose has built seven slacklines

of different heights and lengths

So he can now train without leaving his home

(SOUNDBITE) (English) SLACKLINE ATHLETE, JAAN ROOSE, SAYING:"Actually, I like it. Actually, I like it that I don't have to work and that I can just be a kid in the forest."
