The World Games 2013 Cali 30/07/2012

Blanca Ribas Turón

Blanca Ribas Turón is currently on an extensive tour across South America to assist the WDSF National Member Bodies there in the training of their couples.

"I am working very hard to help them develop further," Blanca reports on her mission, "but they put a lot of interest in it too and are very grateful of the support that WDSF provides them with."

The three-time World Champion in Ten Dance was present in Cali, COL, for the WDSF Open staged there one week ago as a World Games pre-event.

Colombia's third-biggest city will be host to The World Games 2013 exactly one year from now. DanceSport features for the fifth time in this multi-sport event held under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee. Some of Blanca's couples should get selected to compete, as the host country is entitled to wildcards.
