Haley-Shai Kassi was selected as the Young Journalist who will be contributing to telling the stories of the games. She is already racking up screentime on the F4F Instagram and website and we look forward to reading what she’s written.

Vashirn Roach, who is a member of the Montserrat Elite Boys is also in Russia to compete in the International Teams of Friends. He was randomly selected to be a Young Coach.
