This team is brand new and is already famous on social networks
Team DIN was found in June 2020. "Since then, we are inseparable," says the team.
Some of their videos posted on Instagram have more than 6,000 likes. "It's just for fun," says the DIN team, a brand new synchro team created in Germany during the pandemic.
These creative videos come from the Team DIN, a new team founded in June 2020 in Germany, in Dinslaken in North Rhine-Westphalia, in the west of the country.
"Our mascot is Ingo the flamingo. That’s a fun story to talk about, but that would probably be too long for this article," says the skaters who want to show the world their happiness and passion for synchro.
This new team also has a co-coach, Alex. "He is very funny but also as strict as Sabrina. He would never fail to see a mistake. And because all good things come in three, we have our fitness coach Barbara. Also very funny and kind, except during her hard fitness training. She is always torturing us with new exercises, but we love her for doing so."
But the pandemic has complicated things a bit. "Our team was quite new when we had the first lockdown in Germany. We didn’t have much time on the ice. During the lockdowns, we managed to train and improve our fitness with online sessions. We love to train together no matter if it is off or on the ice."
"But because of being together just for a year and all the lockdowns, we will compete when our coaches think that we are ready for it. We also have an arrangement with our local ice hockey team that we will support them during games and do shows during the breaks," they say.
On Instagram, their videos send good vibes during this particular time in the sport. Some of their posts got over 6,000 likes. "We never thought that so many people would recognize us in that short amount of time. Maybe it's not a big number of followers for everyone, but we are overwhelmed by the love and the support we are getting on social media."
