Wonderful..lets hope that unlike the Special olympics, visas are properly organized.
All these sporting bodies can be so DAM disorganised. In the end, so much money is wasted and in the end, persons who try to assist by decreasing their rate thinking its for a good cause, get shafted. Meanwhile, the money that is made is never accounted for or is foolishly spent by tptb at the marriott while athletes stay at roach motels!
The reason why they are disorganized is many of the people who go on the jojo show and talk are real empty vessels. Some have a regular day job, some dont. But many have the same objective – the easy dollars.
So proud of everyone! Especially the esports recognition 👏
