15 years ago, if someone told me that the majorettes, previously only beauty and accompaniment music, will have a separate World Championships, so I told him that this is unrealistic and at least the perfect idea. I’m extremely glad that thanks to the obstinate harden, huge lighting and high dedication of all supporters of majorettes sport and enthusiasts of our production team, initially perhaps the ideal vision becoming a reality.

Challenging the Organization the whole event, including the provision of adequate spaces, transport, accommodation, meals to ensure accreditation of erudite and experienced judges and various legislative formalities in such a short time is truly unbelievable.
However, I believe that we have not forgotten anything important, and the entire event will be successful.
