Welcome all stackers, day 1 of the WSSA 2017 World Sport Stacking Championships in Kaohsiung, Taiwan is in the books.
The day started at noon with practice for the over 450 competitors followed by each country taking the stage to share something unique from their team and/or culture. This is always a great way to showcase each participating country.
Next up was the StackOut which this year had both male and female rounds. Each country, who was able, entered a female and male stacker. Congratulations to Finja Hollin from Germany who won the female StackOut and to Hyeon Jong Choi from Korea who took first place for the guys.
The day came to a close with recognition of this year's stackers who set world records, group photos and the pin/gift exchange.
