Daugavpils has very old and rich traditions of orienteering sports, which we are proud of. That is why I am sure that we will ensure appropriate infrastructure and management of the Championship.
Historically, people of different ethnicities, religion and attitude to life have been living here, in Daugavpils. We consider this diversity to be our largest treasure, we value high the unique personality of our city.
It is a special honour for us to host orienteering competition for people with disabilities. I hope that these sportsmen will inspire local inhabitants to be active and to live their lives, to appreciate every single moment.
Daugavpils is not like other cities of Latvia, it is peculiar in its own way, and I am sure that participants of the Championship will enjoy staying here and will have enough time to get aquianted with it.
