As the defending Team Champion, Australia will face the toughest competition to date. However, they will be bringing back strong performers from the 2014 contest in Nicaragua including: Jackson Close, Jordan Mercer, and Beau Nixon, which will give them a solid chance to keep the Gold Medal down under. The traditional Opening Ceremony for the event will commence on May 10th and will feature the traditional Parade of Nations and Sands of the World ceremonies. The competition will begin on the 11th, with the finals, crowning of Individual and Team Champions, and Closing Ceremony on the 17th. Stay tuned!
