Austrian Classics 2015 report

Mr. Peter Kruckenhauser about Austrian Classics 2015:


   … We started organizing this Championship 19 year ago, and from about 200 competitors then, we are proud of the today’s number of   2218 competitors from 31 countries. We are growing and improving every year. We changed two towns in finding the best place to have this tournament, so we ended up in this beautiful city Innsbruck at the Olympics sports hall which is great for us. When we came to Innsbruck it was the big step for us because so many international competitors came over. The last three-four years, each year we had the new record in number of participants which is the best proof that we are doing the great job.
