The World Winter Masters Games 2020 in Innsbruck continued today here in Innsbruck. Hundreds of athletes were supported by visitors during this event at the monumental mountain Patscherkofel overviewing Innsbruck. Crowd of dedicated fans from different countries gathered to watch the WWMG Race and help competitors in this sport. Remarkable was that the Australian athletes have the strongest and largest team of supporters who travelled more than 24 hours to get to Tyrol.
Peta-Anne, one of the Australian supporters even bought an Austrian cow bell – especially for this special occasion. It helps their masters to succeed in this competition. The oldest and most experienced person in their group is about 75 years old. All 40 members of this friendly team are intending to get the highest results while participating in this international tournament.
We could not find any athlete that was not positively impressed by the race conditions and the quality level of the organization of the World Winter Masters Games 2020.
A Russian athlete from Moscow heralded the great support of the organization, the volunteers and the local Innsbruck population.
This morning several of the Canadian and American sportsmen expressed their wish to come back again to Innsbruck and Austria.
Soon the spectators will enjoy the official Opening Ceremony in the Masters Village which is located in the downtown of the city and share their spirit of the World Winter Masters Games 2020 with friends and colleagues.
