head throughout this trip. I have met and interacted with so many different people from all kinds of backgrounds. I have learned something from each and every single one of them. I have learned so much from the people of Poland and their culture. I have a new found appreciation for being outside. Whether it be walking around the Market Square, strolling by the river, hiking up the Stolowe Mountains, or simply being able to trot down to the bakery in the mornings. I have a new love for walking around and feeling the electric energy of cities and the relaxation of nature. One of the more interesting sports going on during the World Games is beach handball. This sport is similar to handball, but is played on a sandy court, hence the name. The sport is considered a ball sport and involves two teams passing, bouncing, or rolling a ball. The aim of the game is to throw the ball into the goal of the opposing side, in order, to win two out of three sets. At the 2017 World Games, the sport will have two divisions, one women and one male. Currently the competition is still being held at the World Games. In fact, the gold medal matches have
been announced. For the men, Brazil will face Croatia. For the women, Brazil will face Argentina.
