The World Games 2017 | D-30 20/06/2017

Wroclaw OC and the WDSF CM With 30 days to go until the start of The World Games 2017 in Wroclaw, POL, WDSF follows up on preliminary information sent to its +/- 190 accredited participants in letter by Michael Eichert, the Competition Manager (CM) for the DanceSport events.

Michael has since transferred his duties to Antoni Czyzyk, POL, who has assumed the position as CM in a meeting with the World Games organisers in Wroclaw on 19 June.

WDSF would like to thank Michael for doing the lion’s share of the preparatory work and for ensuring a perfect handover to the new CM. WDSF welcomes Antoni, who takes on the assignment after having worked on the Organising Committee’s side with Michael and even with Michael’s predecessor virtually from day one.

At the mark of 30 days to go until the Opening Ceremony, the organisers of The World Games and a delegation around the new Competition Manager met at the Centennial Hall yesterday to finalise the few things left by Michael. Immediately following the meeting, the first of two bulletins gets released to the almost 200 athletes and officials making up the WDSF contingent to the games.
