(Acapulco, ElSur 3 August) The state secretary of tourism promotion, Graciela Báez, has announced an exhibition of “bossaball” on the beach of the Princess in the Diamond Zone. The show will begin tomorrow, August 4, and go through Sunday, August 7. “Bossaball” is a mixture of soccer, beach volleyball, capoeira (Brazilian martial art dance tradition) and gymnastics. It is carried out on a special court on the beach, with musical accompaniment. Two pro teams, one from Mexico and one from the US, will perform the exhibitions.

“Everybody is always moving,” said Secretary Báez, “not only the participants, but also the spectators.” She added that this event is another in a series of special promotions of Acapulco, which will become Mexico’s headquarters for “bossaball” enthusiasts. The sport has recently been heralded by international media as today’s top emerging sporting activity.

The daily events will start at noon and go until 8:00 pm on the beach in front of the Acapulco Princess hotel. Admission is free.
