Over 500 competitors from 120 clubs gathered in Rijeka (Croatia) for a successful age-group event. During two days of competition, young competitors showed their abilities and had the opportunity to compete again under the restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The event followed the WKF Covid-19 Guidelines and regulations imposed by the local authorities were applied.
