Dear guests!

I welcome all athletes and athletics friends. I am sincerely happy that the 1st World Deaf Indoor Athletics Championships will take place here in Tallinn. It is a great honour to the city. Every international sports event that takes place in Tallinn helps the city become known as a city of sports around the world.

It is a pleasure to say that there are more and more big competitions taking place in Tallinn. We have always supported sports, because through supporting sports we become more sportful ourselves. Big competitions taking place in Tallinn also increase the popularity of sport, as well as awareness of different sports.

It is said that sport never becomes easier- the athletes just become stronger. Gold medals that athletes strive towards do not consist of gold, but are made of sweat, consistency, decisiveness and determined effort. To success, you must have a strong psychological background in addition to a strong physique. Recognition is just not medals, it is making a strong performance and giving it your best.

Dear athletes, we wish you a successful competition and spirited experiences. If you exceed yourself, you can count yourself as a winner. In addition, we hope that you will have time to check out our beautiful city and we hope you come back soon!

Mayor of Tallinn
