Chattanoogan, Omar Minhas , will be traveling to Santiago, Chile in late October to judge the Chile Cheerleading National Championships. Only six judges from around the world are selected for this event each year.
Mr. Minhas is all too familiar with these types of notable events. The last four years he has judged the largest event of its kind, The Cheerleading Worlds in Orlando, which aires on ESPN each spring. He has judged over 20,000 routines over the past seven years.
Mr. Minhas cheered at McCallie School and Vanderbilt University before moving to Columbus, Ohio, where he was appointed the director of Staffing for the national cheerleading company, COA Cheer and Dance. Now back in Chattanooga for the past seven years, and at the age of 32, his reputation, industry knowledge and connections have brought him to the forefront of the industry.
Mr. Minhas noted, “I am very excited about the opportunity to travel to Chile and judge their National Competition. I am also very proud to be representing Chattanooga and look forward to working with such a distinguished panel of professionals.”
