Before that, Benny was a sportsman on a professional level; known for both tennis and snowboarding and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Last year Benny won the Czech Republic’s national selection show ESCZ with his track Kemama, pushing Elis Mraz & Čis T into second place.

From all the initial four scenarios they considered at the beginning, the organisers have decided to implement ‘Scenario B’.
The health safety and protocols that will be followed match with the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment guidelines for similar large-scale events such as sports competitions.
