KAZAN, July 9 (Itar-Tass) - The governor of Russia’s Krasnoyarsk territory, Lev Kuznetsov, said on Tuesday that Krasnoyarsk had a great chance to win the right to host the 2019 World Winter University Games.
“We believe in our victory. And if someone believes that he will win, then victory will come,” Kuznetsov told a news conference at the Tass club, which is currently working in Kazan, on Tuesday.
In his view, Krasnoyarsk is superior to its chief rival, St. Gallen in Switzerland, by many criteria. "The Swiss are more technology-savvy but our city is more preferable if we look at the philosophy of the International University Sports Federation (FISU),” Kuznetsov went on to say.
"If we win, we will do everything possible to justify the trust given to us by Russia and the entire world community," the governor emphasized.
On May 11, 2013, the International University Sports Federation (FISU) announced Krasnoyarsk in Russia and St. Gallen in Switzerland to be official candidates for hosting the 2019 World Winter University Games. The FISU will make its final decision in Lausanne, Switzerland, on November 13, 2013.
