Dear Skating Friends!
Over 200 athletes from more than 40 countries who compete to find the best in more than 200 races within 3 days; more than 100 team officials, 40 ISU Officials, technical operators and 50 volunteers – those are the mere facts and figures of the ISU World Junior Short Track Speed Skating Championships 2017 in Innsbruck.
But to tell the truth, what we are really looking forward to is welcoming friends from all over the world to celebrate this festival of sports and youth together.
May all your wishes and goals come true and be achieved – we hope that the ISU World Junior Short Track Speed Skating Championships 2017 in Innsbruck will turn out to be an unforgetable experience for all of us.
