Just two months away from the May 26 opening ceremony of the 2017 World Outgames, organizers tell Outsports they have just over 2,000 athletes registered. The Outgames currently lists 30 sports being held.
While the number of participants is well below the Outgames’ own projections, organizers are committed to ensuring a good experience for all attendees. They also promise the event will not be canceled.
“Miami will welcome everyone with open arms for an amazing 10 days of sports, human rights and cultural offerings,” said Outgames spokesperson Michael Goodman. “We remain passionate and committed to changing people’s lives, and we will.”
