I am happy to greet you at the 8th European Universities Rugby 7’s Championship in Milan, Italy!
On behalf of the whole EUSA community, I would like to express my gratitude for inviting European student-athletes here. It’s a wonderful occasion to be together and experience the beauty of sport. I am pleased to see so many sport lovers, who share values of fair play, equal opportunities and education, promoted by EUSA.
European Universities Championships 2017 organized in 19 sports make it possible for student-athletes to get to know each other and challenge their skills in a friendly atmosphere. During such events we do more than just sport – we broaden our horizons, get to know other cultures, we promote healthy mind in a healthy body.
Being an organizer of such an event is challenging but rewarding. I know it’s a hard task, and I want to express my appreciation to the Organizing Committee and its partners for the great job they have done. And of course, my gratitude to the authorities for their auspices of this event.
I believe that this Championship will bring the participants positive experiences and good results. I am sure that the athletes will complete in a fair play manner, respecting the rules and their opponents and please the spectators with their performance.
I hope you will enjoy your stay, your achievements and your time spent in Milan!
