Australians Opt Out of BladeSports World Championship


The following e-mail came in to BLADE offices this morning:



Hello Everyone,

BladeSports Australia has had difficulty with weather, natural disasters and logistical issues with travel. They have informed me that they will not be able to send anyone to the World Championship this season. Due to the Australians opting out of the World Championship; there will now be 8 spots for the US. There will still be 2 spots for the UK, and 2 spots for the Netherlands.

Therefore, at the US National Championship, the top 8 cutters will be invited to the World Championships.

Be safe, have fun, and defy expectations.
