Primul meu European Youth Olympic Festival

Eu & Ana din Gașca lui Coubertin ne pregătim de European Youth Olympic Festival 2017. De fapt, de pregătit ne tot pregătim de câteva luni (am aplicat ca voluntari în octombrie 2016), azi suntem deja pe drum spre Budapesta.

No fewer than 2,586 competitors from 50 countries are expected to participate at EYOF Győr 2017: 1,303 boys and 1,284 girls.

In 1990, then President of the European Olympic Committees Jacques Rogge initiated the
European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) in order to present the youth athletes with an opportunity
to familiarise themselves with the ideals, universal values, and organisational system of the
Olympic Games. In addition, President Rogge also wanted to give future Olympians a chance to
compete on an outstanding international level.
Similar to the Olympic Games, European Youth Olympic Festivals are not held each year either. Harmonised with the four-year Olympic cycles, not “interfering” with the Olympic Games, the European continent hosts this outstanding, by now perhaps the most prominent, competition of young athletes (14-to-18 age group) every odd year.
EYOF Győr 2017 is the 14th such event. This is the first official Olympic event in Hungary.

Dacă vă întrebați de câți voluntari e nevoie pentru organizarea unui astfel de eveniment… Ei bine, de vreo 1700. (la Rio am fost vreo 50.000 :D) 

1506 sunt voluntari unguri + alți aprox. 200 provin din: Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Lebanon, Luxemburg, Morocco, Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of South Africa, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, and USA. Din România suntem cel puțin 4: eu, Ana, Cazi, un Marius pe care urmează să-l cunosc.

Cam atât, momentan. E 1.12 am și mai am cam 5h17′ până sună prima alarmă. La 9.05 decolăm. 🙂

Let us make this event, with Győr playing host to fifty European countries, a triumph together! Go EYOF, come on, Volunteers! #EYOF2017
