Mais do que 32 countries sent their national teams , mais do que 700 fighters on the scale.
Very strong teams from Latin America like Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and Venezuela. Also Slovakia, Czech Republic and Ukraine had many Gold medals.
The big surprise was the strong Semi contact team from Ukraine, who beat the strong WKF Germany team in the team fight. And we had also a girl fighting from Vietnam
And like every Year, many countries could not open Visa, although the promoter and organising team send invitation and also guarantee letters, if requested. Still this countries started to late, did not sent or changed the list of the team again and again. Perhaps our friends doesn´t understand, how much work is this Visa procedure. And each guarantee letter cost 80 Euros to the government for the promoter. In future is no guarantee letter possible, without transfer of the 80 Euros in advance.
Same story with Hotel booking. Muitos países reservaram o seu Hotel em Varazdin, mas sem o pagamento até prazo. O promotor entrar em sérios problemas com os quartos do hotel bloqueados.
Lembre-se – cada equipe deve reservar o Hotel obrigatório exclusivamente pela equipe organizadora. A mesma história na Ucrânia no próximo ano, e Praga 2014.
