FYROM has experience in hosting major events having held senior world and European championships in the past in 2011 and 2006 respectively, but it is the first time for President of the FYROM WAKO federation Mr Dejan Mitrovski Urko who has excelled in bringing a world class event back to the Boris Trajkovski Sport Centre, which is named after the former FYRO Macedonian president who died in a plane crash in 2004.
