Whether it was helping tie a sash in the warm up area, kicking back together to watch World Cup football between events, or snapping photos at some of Brasilia’s stunning architectural landmarks, the camaraderie at this 7th WJWC was truly inspiring. Undoubtedly some remarkable lifetime friendships may have been forged here in Brazil." Sally-author at 7wjwc
