What do you/your athletes know about Austria/your host town?
I have visited Austria in october 2016 in HOD meeting. I have been informed elaborately about the venues, sports, hospitality, host towns, olympic towns, cultural events ,accommodation, transportation etc. I have tried to document it as snaps and videos . I also get many informations from "austria2017.org” web site and net. I presented before my athletes, partners, coaches and other officials in a palatable way. Actually it was the peace meals (piecemeal?) of Austria. Hope that they will complete the virtual scenario into real upon their arrival in Austria. Actually our athletes got a great idea about their stay in Austria. Graz is the cultural capital of Europe. The humanity that you people have were made them pleased. Our athletes are waiting to meet and take part in the great event of the Earth.
