10 things we’ve learned at EUG 2016


News - 10 things we’ve learned at EUG 2016

Dragiša Vlahović and Damjan Kilibarda, known to their friends as Micko and Kili, are volunteers from Montenegro. Dragiša has a degree in sports law, and Damjan is studying sports management. The hardworking guys volunteered at logistics and protocol, but numerous sports as well.

They described volunteering at the European Universities Games Zagreb – Rijeka 2016 as a great experience, and here are the ten things they will take home from the Games:

  • Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When you see what the athletes eat in the morning, you should feel bad about only drinking coffee for breakfast.
  • With this many people, Wi-Fi becomes Sci-Fi.
  • When in need of air conditioning, you have one around your neck. That is why accreditations are plasticized, to withstand the fan cooling system.
  • Regardless of a C2 in the language of love, knowing any foreign language is a big plus.
  • There are exactly 82 steps from the ground floor to the fourth floor in pavilion n.6.
  • There is no way for you to lose any weight at the Games. What you lose on the steps, you will gain in the restaurant no. 2 with aunt Ruža.
  • Bridge is a serious sport. For those who have an A in math.
  • It is important to think carefully before picking a sporting event where you will volunteer. There is a difference between watching golf and beach volleyball.
  • The guards at the entrance to the athletes’ village are like referees at the field. Incorruptible.
  • When you don’t know what to do with yourself, cross the road. Everyone is at Roko.
  • What next?
