The FICEP/FISEC games ended with the finals and the closing ceremony on Thursday, July 28th. Some nations started their journey home early in the morning – some even extended their stay in Carinthia for a few days. Looking back, it remains to be said that it was a week full of emotions, joy and success.
Die diesjährigen FICEP/FISEC Spiele wurden in Klagenfurt von der SPORTUNION Kärnten als Gastgeber ausgerichtet. Von 23.-29.7. kämpften 15 Nationen in 6 Sportarten um Medaillen. Im Vordergrund standen die gemeinsamen Werte der Verbände, wie Fairness, Toleranz, Nächstenliebe, Inklusion und Integration.
Greetings by Ulrich Zafoschnig, President of the SPORTUNION Kärnten
Sport is very important in our lives! Thus, I highly appreciate, that SPORTUNION Kärnten was selected as host and organizer of the FICEP-FISEC Summer Games 2022 in Klagenfurt. Klagenfurt is an open-minded host city in the south of Austria, which has widely been recognized for its beautiful landscape. The FICEP-FISEC Summer Games 2022 are a great opportunity: on the one hand for the young athletes, who will get the chance to compete with other young people under the conditions of a major international sport event, and, on the other hand, for the city of Klagenfurt as well as for the region of Carinthia and its reputation as popular destination for international sport events. I am sure, that we will be able to attend exciting, fair and safe competitions and that it will be an impressive experience for all of us!
