My Dear Friends
It is my pleasure to welcome you all to the opening ceremony of European Athletics U20 Championships in Jerusalem.
On behalf of the Israel Athletics Association and the Local Organizing Committee, I would like to extend a warm greeting to each and every one of you who will be attending this great event.
The European Athletics U20 Championships brings together the young athletes from around Europe, all of whom will have trained hard and sacrificed much to qualify. Their dedication and passion for the sport is an inspiration to us all, and it is our honor to provide a platform for their talents to shine.
As we come closer to the Championships, let us remember that sports are not only about winning and losing, but also about the spirit of fair play, and respect for others.
May this Championship be a celebration of human excellence and a showcase of the best that European Athletics has to offer. I wish all of the athletes the very best of luck, and I hope that you will all enjoy the exciting competition ahead in Jerusalem.
