This championships is very important for us because WAKO is in the process of becoming a member of FISU. Once WAKO becomes FISU member our federation and athletes will already be ready to participate in international events regulated by FISU. Our championships was organized with cooperation and patronage of Turkish University Sports Federation and this is very important both for us and for WAKO since Turkish University Sports Federation is a FISU member federation. Now only a few WAKO member federations are organizing Univesrity Championships and I hope this number will increase so that WAKO can get closer to it’s objective to become a FISU member sport and become a part of Universiade.”
