Andrés Botero © COLDEPORTESIn an interview with the Colombian newspaper El Heraldo, Andrés Botero, the State Secretary for Sports and a member of the IOC, singled out DanceSport from among the 30+ that featured on the programme of The World Games 2013 in Cali, COL.

Asked what competition he enjoyed the most during the multi-sport event, Botero made flattering remarks about DanceSport staged on 27 and 28 July at the Cali bullfighting ring. Full interview here!
