“We have left home very early today. One part of the team took the bus from Wroclaw to Warsaw, and met the others there. We left to Budapest together”, Polish Team Leader Anna Lukanova-Jakubowska said right after arrival.
As the athletes and team staff received their room keys to take over their rooms, the youngsters seemed to be cheerful and happy. “None of them was there in Debrecen in 2013 World Championships in Hungary, this is a very new experience for them”, Lukanova-Jakubowska continued. “They will take a short rest, and then have their first practice session this evening” – she said.
