It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the 2010 IPC Shooting World Championships in Zagreb - Croatia. Once again the shooting community shall gather to celebrate another big event, an event which emphasis the great development of sport for people with disabilities.
We have more than 10 years of experience in organizing local, national and international competitions, which is the best confirmation and guarantee for managing this important event. Still, this event is of particular importance for the Croatian Paralympic Sport because it is the first time ever, that we are organizing an IPC World Championship.
Aware of the importance for the whole nation, our Gouverment and the City of Zagreb joined the Organisation and gave us a big support. The Prime Minister Mrs. Jadranka Kosor is the patron of the Championship and the Ministry of Defense, the General Staff of Croatian Armed Forces and the City of Zagreb provided great help why I am using the opportunity to thank them.
Last, I do welcome all athlets, coaches, accompanying persons as well as the officials and I take the opportunity to wish them all exciting and succesful days in Zagreb.
