I am very happy to be in Belarus and see the result of several-month preparations. Your federation did a great job. Hotels, venues and everything else were great. The facilities are located nearby which is convenient. I talked to different teams and they too were happy with the level of organization, from infrastructure to meals,” Patric Baumann noted.
