Raubichi expects up to 50,000 visitors at 2015 IBU Youth/Junior World Championships

MINSK, 28 January (BelTA) – The organizers of the 2015 IBU Youth/Junior World Championships expect up to 50,000 visitors to see the competitions in Raubichi, First Deputy Sport and Tourism Minister of Belarus Alexander Gagiyev told media on 28 January.

In his words, the last big biathlon tournament hosted by Raubichi (the European Biathlon Championships in 2004) was attended by nearly 70,000 fans. The organizers of the forthcoming event expect a smaller number of visitors since it is a junior competition. Alexander Gagiyev advises fans to use public transport in order to get to the ski resort. The number of parking places is small (about 450), and they will be allocated for the transport of the participants, judges and technical staff of the championships as well as for the press.

Additional parking places for visitors will be prepared not far from the Raubichi ski resort.

According to Alexander Gagiyev, the visit to the forthcoming world championships will be a pleasant surprise for those who have not been in Raubichi for long. The center has changed a lot since its renovation started in 2013. According to the international experts that paid a visit to the sport center, the current conditions in Raubichi meet the highest international standards.

Raubichi will host the IBU Youth/Junior World Championships from 17 to 24 February 2015.
