Australian Latvian sports championships
As we move closer to the 57th Australian Latvian Arts Festival proudly hosted by the Latvian Community of Adelaide, it is a worth noting that in acknowledging the centenary of Latvian Independence, we pay homage not only to a rich history of art and culture but also sport. There are many Latvian athletes who, throughout history, have attained great success in their chosen fields: Janis Dalins, Janis Krumins, Ilze Konrads, Janis Konrads, Ernests Gulbis, Maris Strombergs, Kristaps Porzingis, Anete Jekabsons.
Thus, in true KD tradition, sports will again feature amongst the planned activities with teams representing a number of other cities. The 47th Australian Latvian Sports Championships (ALM) will be held on Sunday 30th and Monday 31st December and currently a venue is being finalised. The Latvian Arts Festival organising committee will certainly keep you up to date with all the latest information, including where the games will be held, who to contact if you wish to play and where to have a cold beverage after the games conclude.
Currently, the organising committee is focusing on basketball and volleyball, but we are also looking into hosting a golf tournament and a darts tournament.
As we ramp up for the festivities years’ end, the KD website is regularly updated with consolidated plans and dates. It is recommended that the website be regularly checked for details of the schedule and please also feel free to contact us for any other queries.
We look forward to seeing you there!
