On behalf of the World Baton Twirling Federation Board of Directors and Executive Committee, I take this opportunity to thank the Croatian Twirling Federation for hosting the 2017 Grand Prix of Baton Twirling and 9th World Baton Twirling International Cup in the beautiful city of Poreč and the Istria region. I look forward to working with Mrs. Marina Mihelčić, Croatia’s Federation President and the board and technical members of this great organization to make the event very special for our world baton twirling community.
Baton Twirling is a relatively new sport in the Croatian Olympic Committee and WBTF is proud of Croatia’s accomplishments during its short life in our international competitive arena. We hope to see many more Croatian athletes competing on the international level soon
I am looking forward to returning to your lovely country and the city of Poreč and can’t wait to see what our very accomplished and athletes have in store for us in 2017!
