Platja d'Aro Wheelchair Open 06/11/2013

Wheelchair DanceSport Publiolimpia, the organiser of the Platja d'Aro DanceSport Festival, customarily includes at least one wheelchair competition in the programme of the three-day event.

Ever since 2009 - when the first International Open was held in Spain right after IPC and WDSF had pledged to develop Wheelchair DanceSport jointly - the competitions counted among the favourites of the public in attendance at the Palau d'Esports in Platja d'Aro.

Publiolimpia produced 52-minute broadcasts of the two Opens for channels in Catalonia and Spain. Here is the final of the Latin. Plus two shows performed by Marek Zaborowski - Katarzyna Bloch, POL, and Maxim Kiselev - Caitlan Elizabeth Cook, USA.
