Handstand day: Why are you excited about International Handstand day?
Edgar: Because it’s a funny way to introduce gymnastics to the world. And it’s a great opportunity to gather every single person from all around the world for cool and funny gymnastics kind of day.
Handstand day: If you had no constraints, where would you like to do a handstand?
Edgar: As I live in Paris I would want to take pictures in front of historical monuments in Paris like the Eiffel Tower or le Louvre museum and others.
Handstand day: What is the connection you have to handstands? Tell us how you got interested in being upside-down.
Edgar: I love being upside-down because it feels different than usual and I always enjoy flipping around and get my head in all different directions like twisting and flipping so of course being upside down feels good to me.
Handstand day: Tell us about a story when you first learned a handstand
Edgar: Well I wasn’t a gymnast yet and I saw someone doing it, I thought it was really cool so I kept trying and trying until I knew how to do it.
Handstand day: Tell us about the time you were struggling to perform a handstand. What did you do to overcome it?
Edgar: I am the kind of person that keeps trying over and over. So I thought about solutions and I decided to put my feet against a wall and tried to hold for as long as I could.
Handstand day: What tips would you give to people who want to learn a handstand?
Edgar: Believe in themselves and keep trying with a positive attitude. They can try with a wall first so their shoulder muscles can get stronger and after a while, then without the wall to try to find the right balance.
Handstand day: We want to know what else you’re up to when you’re not up-side down.
Edgar: Recently I launched my own brand of sportswear clothes which is called By Ed and you can find it on Instagram : @byed_clothing so now I’m busy trying to develop the brand.
