Porto Alegre worlds under way after delayed opening ceremony
Dave Proffitt of UK posted the photo below to the WMA Facebook page, and WMA President Stan Perkins commented: “It was a good ceremony, but it started late unfortunately, and many of the athletes left before the entertainment that was fun, particularly the dancing. Such a pity.” Also a cautionary tale from a Canadian: “My first … event, the decathlon, was today, but they wouldn’t let me compete because I [inadvertently] left my number at the hotel. Oh, well, there will be other events and I will make sure to have my number with me.” Meanwhile, WMA has posted the latest in a series of corrections to the schedule. Also be sure to follow WMA on Twitter. I’m not in Porto Alegre and I have no clue where results are being posted, so if anyone can share link, it would be nice. Also please let us know how things are going. Weather reports are here, and Porto Alegre local time is here.
