We definitely also suggest you to stay at walking distance with respect to where the championship will be held. This will avoid worries that could penalise the athletes’ mental status, and will also avoid delays. In this regard, please remember that competitors that won’t be present at the beginning of the competition will remain outside the room until the starting of the following discipline.
