The information was conveyed by Sergey Tsymbal, Deputy of HMBIA President for international relations.
“We’ll accept applications until mid-May. And at the end of the month there’ll be a draw to determine opponents for the group stage, for everyone to know their opponents at the World Championship,” said Tsymbal.
According to him, even now, a month before the festival, it is clear the event will be much bigger than it was previously.
“More than 50 men and 20 women are going to participate in triathlon. There will be more than 45 five-member teams. The “Royal category”, at the moment, includes six national teams, some are still trying to find enough fighters,” said Sergey Tsymbal.
We remind you that 30 national teams have applied for the participation in “Battle of the Nations”-2014, so far.
