Ball Controlling show at Campus Party 2010

The Campus Party 2010 at the Centro de Exposições Imigrantes and several events and stands have been happening at the same time. One of the most interesting one doesn't have that much connection with technology but it is as interesting as. The young athlete Karine Duarte used to be a child player at the Corinthians soccer team in São Paulo and now is a juggling master.

She is the Brazilian recorder of "embaixadinha" (keeping the ball off the ground by using head, breast, thighs and feet). In December of 2007, she kicked 17 thousand times the ball uninterrupted during 2 hours and 22 minutes.
Her ball controlling skill is amazing. Have a look on the amazing video made by the insidesaopaulo team on the Campus Party 2010.

Where: Centro de Exposições Imigrantes — São Paulo
When: January 25th to 31st. Open to visitors: January 26th to 30th, from 10am to 9pm and 31st, from 10am to 5pm (only for the Expo Area). Opening for campers: January 25th at midday.
How much: For free to visit the Expo area. It is not linked to the entry into the Campers area.
How to get there: The best way is to take a subway. The closest one is the Jabaquara Station. Once there, take the corridor on the left straight after the exit point. At the end, is possible to get a bus, free of charge, organized by the event. It's also possible to go by car but it's necessary to pay for parking (R$ 20).
