Maicel Uibo: In my head, I am always the strongest
“In individual events, you really know what’s happening. It turned hot enough right after the javelin with those back and forth changing positions. You win some, you lose some. Finally, we are happy with the overall win. For me personally it wasn’t the best one. I struggled a little bit on Day 1, so I found myself where I was overnight, with one of the lowest Day 1 score over the last six years. But it is as it is. I feel relatively healthy. So, I’m gonna have some rest, some rehab, and then get back in to work to get ready for IAAF World Champs where I hope to be much better than here. I’m gonna get any injuries under control and reach a better shape than right now. We’ve got a really solid team. A couple of younger guys are stepping up such as Kristjan Rosenberg who is back after the injury and doing really good and Janek Õiglane and some more guys in the tank. But in my head I am always the strongest one and I am sure they think the same”.

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.
