Also seen were Brazilian Ambassador Pedro Fernando Brêta Bastos and his colleagues.
The three-time Olympic medalist, joined by his famous curly blond locks, hosted the sold-out event Monday night at the Shaw Centre, giving some 600 attendees a tiny taste of his dancing prowess while on stage with costumed dancers.
He told everyone how excited he was “to dust off the old shirt”, referring to his multi-coloured poofy blouse with sleeves covered in Seinfeld-esque frills.
