Thanks for a great opportunity to be here at European Combined Events Team Championships Super League. I would like to thank everybody and welcome all of you. I would also like to address words of thanks to Ukrainian Athletic Association and personally to its President Ihor Hotsul, a good friend of mine. Generally, Ukrainian athletes have improved their performances recently and strengthened their positions in the world. Hopefully we will see the same in the next few days. Thanks to all journalists for your work which is so important for the event. Good luck to athletes not only for tomorrow competition which is definitely a great chance and a good challenge every time they complete but also for the whole season and the upcoming years in their careers.
European Combined Events Team Championships Super League takes place at the Avanhard stadium. It was renovated in 2015 and certified by the IAAF as a Class 2 Athletics Facility in March 2016. Nowadays, it is a modern European athletics arena, which has already hosted many athletics competitions including International U18 Athletics Matches and Ukrainian National Championships.
Three hotels will be used as official ones for the European Combined Events Team Championships Super League. Teams' hotel complex Ukraine is located only 1.5km from Avanhard stadium. It is situated in the very center of the city and it has often hosted teams during athletics competitions and events.
Danylo Halytskyi Lviv International Airport is the official airport. It is located 150km away from Lutsk and it’s the largest airport in the Western Ukraine thanks to the big passenger flow and destination network.
