Leo Kranz: Never before have I seen such a quality event

The swimming finals will be held on Friday in the Aqua Sport Centre. This is the busiest day of the competitions, since winners will be announced in a total of ten events.

It is already evident however, that the organization of the tournament is really top notch, and the Competition Director receives a lot of positive feedback. Leo Kranz from Lichtenstein, who is a Member of the EYOF Committee of the European Olympics Committees, also spoke highly of the swimming competitions.

"I have been involved in the EYOF movement since 2001, but never before have I seen an event implemented to such high standards. In overall terms, the local organizers, the referees and the local LEN delegates managed to put together a fantastic tournament. I only receive positive comments from guest teams living in the Athlete's Village. The main objective is ensuring that the people the event focuses on, i.e. the athletes themselves should return to their home countries feeling content and taking with them a lifetime experience in their hearts. If this can be ensured, the EYOF and the European Olympic Committees have successfully attained their goal of promoting the Olympic movement, fair play and sports in general" the sport diplomat confirmed.
Iván Petrov, the Director of the swimming competitions said that Győr showed how strong sport culture in Hungary is, seeing that the city was able to stage, in a manner parallel to the FINA World Championships, a multi-sport event not only involving the organization of ten separate European Championships, but also providing for the catering, travel and accommodation of thousands of participants.

"I would like to say thank you to the staff of the Aqua Sport Centre, the Hungarian referees, our fantastic volunteers and, of course, members of the security staff, the police, the ambulance service and the physicians that were present, the cooperation and pro-active attitudes of whom made this an extraordinary event," Iván Petrov said.
