In his view, the people of Tatarstan can share the credit for the World Student Games’ success.
"Our friends in Tatarstan have done their best to make this feast of sport, students and youth to succeed. Although the Games will officially close only in a few days from now, we can fairly claim that the 27th World Summer University Games have been the best in the history of World Student Games. Let me thank our wonderful organizers for it,” Gusman emphasized.
In conclusion, the Itar-Tass first deputy director-general invited everybody to continue coming to the Tass club.
