227 athletes from seven nations, 10 TUL staff members and 50 volunteers from the local region led by TUL Sports Director Antti Kempas gave their all for four perfect days in Oulu and many weeks and months before to make the CSIT Singles Championships Swimming a complete success. The great efforts paid off. The athletes were absolutely satisfied, the schedule was perfect, the accommodations superb and the food excellent.
