Pepsi Cheerleading Contest 2013 open for applications (Laos)

Laos Pepsi Cheerleading
The 2nd Pepsi Cheerleading Contest, part of the Lao National Olympic Committee President’s Cup, will kick off on 8 November, with the aim of promoting physical fitness among students.

The organising committee is now accepting applications from dancing teams nationwide, according to an announcement by Mr Khompanya Phengvinaiya at a press conference in Vientiane on 18 September.

The Pepsi Cheerleading Contest hopes to promote sports and fitness in an effort to keep teenagers free of drugs and social problems, and also promote friendship between students.

The contest will help develop cheerleading amid hopes that Lao students can demonstrate their talent at the World Cheerleading Contest to be hosted in Thailand this November.

Mr Khompanya said that cheerleading is a highly competitive sport, similar to gymnastics, but with a greater focus upon team coordination and dance.

He therefore encouraged all cheerleading teams from the national Sport and Gymnastic Institute, universities and colleges to participate.

The final round of the contest will be held on 8 November at the National University of Laos from 14:00 pm and will be broadcast live via Lao National Television.

The winning team will be awarded 20 million kip in cash and a trophy, with prizes for second and third place as well. The team who wins the Pepsi Popular Vote will receive 5 million kip.

The first cheerleading contest took place last year, as part of the 16th ASEAN University Games Competition.

The Pepsi Cheerleading Contest was supported by Lao Brewery Company and organized by the Lao National Olympic Committee.

This year, teams of 14 to 18 contestants, including both male and female members, can apply at Khompanya Entertainment Company or Facebook.com/Pepsilao or contact 020 5464 8251. Seventeen teams from universities and colleges in Vientiane have already entered the contest.
