Live from Belek ... 08/04/2014

WDSF SportAccord DelegationThe World DanceSport Federation attends the 2014 edition of the SportAccord Convention in full force.

Eva Bartunkova, the President of the Czech DanceSport Federation, and Ashli Williamson of the Athletes' Commission accompany WDSF President Carlos Freitag and First Vice-President Lukas Hinder during the four days of the convention that is held in Belek, TUR, this year.

Sports governance is still a very much male-dominated business. But WDSF is one of the organisations committed to change that by bringing women up to speed on the inner workings of world sports. And there is no better place to do that than here at the SportAccord Convention ... Where sport meets!

Over the next few days, Eva and Ashli will report on their experiences in Belek. Stay tuned!
