AIDA WC 2010 Website Open

As reported earlier, this year the AIDA world championships will be a team event that will take place in Japan. The website has just opened and some first information can be found over there. Take a look here.

One of the interesting stuff on the site is the price per athlete to compete, which is set at 690 USD, or 650 if you’re an early-bird. This money if for the whole competition, including trainings, competitions, bus transfers. The price doesn’t include the hotel costs, which I initially thought when seeing this price. For 10 days, in a 2 bedroom room including 2 food vouchers per day, you pay and additional 600 USD. So total will be around 1250 USD, without your flight. I guess some team really will need sponsors this year!
