It was a very well organised tournament in a beautiful, fully equipped venue. The Turkish federation may be proud with what was achieved and will surely be approached for more.
The referees, together with the assistants, performed well under the guidance of Jorge Alves, the IKF assessor. The jury left a legacy by instructing many local members.
The IKF had the opportunity to have informal conversations with the team managers about their worries and their hopes to improve future events and tournaments.
