13th Edition of the Volkssport Olympiad in Val Gardena - THANK YOU!

"I would like to thank all the participants at the 13th edition of the Volkssport Olympiad in Val Gardena, it was a wonderful celebration of sport and companionship”.
With these words, the closing ceremony of the 13th IVV Olympiad national sport was initiated by the President of Val Gardena Marketing and President of the Organizing Committee Mrs. Christina Demetz.

The approximately 3000 participants from 29 nations, led by Germany and followed by Norway, Luxembourg, France, Belgium and so forth, took part in Val Gardena from 25 to 29 June 2013 in the disciplines of trekking, Nordic Walking, running, swimming and cycling.
The peculiarity of the IVV Olympics: True to the Olympic principle "the most important is to participate" are contrary to the Olympics of professionals, instead of the rival character there is the community objective in mind and the enthusiasm of the participants to make sport all together.

At the end of the closing ceremony, Mrs. Christina Demetz said good bye with the words: "This event has helped to make internationally known Val Gardena as well as South Tyrol, and I'm sure that one or another will return to enjoy the beauty of this region“.
The Olympic flame was then deleted and the Olympic flag of the IVV passed to the representatives of the next venue, the Chinese Chengdu.
