Welcome message from the President of the Croatian wrestling federation
I warmly welcome you on behalf of one small country and small wrestling federation, but country with long wrestling tradition and a big wrestling heart.
Today our country is at the doorstep of European Union, where it belongs historically, geographically and culturally.
It is great honor and satisfaction that International Wrestling Federation FILA chose us as an organizer of Junior Wrestling European Championship at this historical moment for our nation, allowing us to present our city and our country to whole Europe and to the world.
Therefore, we say a big „Thank you“ to FILA and its President, Raphael Martinetti!
We will try to do our best to make all participants feel pleasant in our city of Zagreb, and we believe that we will be able to provide top conditions for all athletes and guests during the Junior Wrestling European Championship in Zagreb from June 19th – June 24th 2012.
I want to welcome whole „wrestling Europe“ in Zagreb, Croatia, with wishes that you will feel pleasant in our country and that, in the end you will want to come again.
President of the Croatian wrestling federation
