Ambassador Jones Gives Shout-out to U.S. Embassy Support for Marcin Gortat Camps

Ambassador Jones visited Washington Wizards star Marcin Gortat’s youth basketball camp in Piaseczno on June 22.  The Ambassador met with student athletes and their parents.  While in Krakow, Marcin Gortat and his MG 13 Foundation organized camps for young basketball players, including children in wheelchairs. The Polish Wheelchair Basketball Team joined the training, which was a wonderful event showing children with disabilities that they can actively participate in sports and be successful.  Watch the video here:  Krakow Consul General Walter Braunohler was among the hundreds of fans who attended the big charity game between Team Gortat and the Polish Army Team game in  Kraków’s Tauron Arena.  This is the fourth year the Embassy has supported Gortat’s camps throughout Poland.  Ten winners of the camps will go to the United States to participate in a special cultural exchange program and attend a Washington Wizards NBA game.
