On behalf of the whole EUSA community let me express my appreciation for having been invited here. I value the opportunity to share with you the upcoming emotions of joy and excitement, which all of us expect from this event. It's a pleasure for me to see, that so many young people gathered here are keen on sport and support the ideals of fair play, equal opportunities, volunteering and education through sport , fostered by EUSA.
19 European Universities Championships to take place this year, the biggest number ever in EUSA history, give a great chance for student-athletes to test their skills and feel a part of European university sport community.
Being here we all serve a common goal - uniting cultures through sport and advertising the power of mind, body and will. Thus, I want to thank the Organizing Committee and other communities involved in the hosting of the Championship for a great job they have done. I also want to thank all the Authorities for their support and contribution to the event.
I’m sure, at this Championship athletes will perform at their best, competing in a fair play manner, respecting the rules and the opponents and will evoke admiration from the spectators.
I hope you will enjoy your stay, I hope you will be satisfied with your results, I hope you will meet new friends and bring back home only wonderful memories.
