Miss Valentine International Tournament
ONLINE EVENT June 17-20, 2021
2021 Miss Valentine Tartu Grand Prix
As you all know, Miss Valentine organizers have recently decided to postpone the event to June of 2021.
In the meantime, the viral situation has unfortunately worsened in Estonia. Not only that, but the Municipality of Tartu has also decided to temporarily turn our arena into a vaccination centre from April to August.
Considering these circumstances, the competition organizers have very sadly decided that the Miss Valentine competition and Tartu Grand Prix 2021 will not take place as the traditional, in–person event.
But, to keep this beautiful tradition alive during the pandemic, we will still hold an online tournament on June 17-20, 2021. All gymnasts are welcome to participate! For more information, please keep checking our website and online channels.
Stay safe and healthy, we hope to see you all in 2022!
