Columbia’s Double Dutch Forces jump-roping team will be eyeing another milestone this weekend.
The team, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, is competing in the World Competition in Sumter and could claim a 100th world title with a win in any of several age divisions. The competition runs today and Saturday at the Sumter Exhibition Center; admission is free.
The Forces 25-year resume includes 99 world titles, more than 250 state titles and various national and Grand National titles.
Head coach Joy Holman said the team enters this weekend’s competition with the same mind-set team members have embraced in 25 years of championship performance. She spoke recently about that legacy and what’s ahead for the Forces.
