With 2 weeks to go until the competition starts in Montreal excitement is growing at BISFed. Competitors from as far and wide as Brazil, Russia and Australia will all descend on Montreal to showcase their talent. Alongside the elite competitors will be athletes taking part in the schools competition. Local favourite Marco Dispaltro told organisers, ”At the international level, the number of athletes has been growing year over year. I especially like to see the level of interest at the school level. They are the future of our sport and I understand how important it is to them to rub shoulders with the elite. It is inspiring for them, but also for us. I am touched by their sense of wonder”.
