For the city of Riccione it is a great honor to host an event of such international caliber.
The Lifesaving World Championships will not only be a great agonistic showcase, but also an opportunity to present Riccione as a city open to the world of sports, both with the renovated facilities of Riccione Swimming Stadium and its hotel structures, prepared to welcome its guests.
In occasion of the Lifesaving World Championships, Riccione will embrace this important sport event, providing every service and, above all, human principal, that makes this city a reason of great pride. Care and professionalism will be constant to ensure that the 2020 is an extraordinary edition.
As President of the Polisportiva Comunale Riccione, I am delighted and honored to host at the Riccione Swimming Stadium the Lifesaving World Championships. An event that brings the whole world to Riccione and that we are ready to welcome not only with the hospitality that distinguishes our people, but also with the great professionalism that over the years we have been able to demonstrate organizing numerous National and International Sports events.
I know what it means, from a logistical point of view, to create an event of this kind. For this reason I can already in advance thank all the staff of the Polisportiva Comunale Riccione and the Riccione Swimming Stadium who have welcomed this occasion with great enthusiasm. To do our best, on our side we have a city that you can fall in love with, set between the sea, the long beaches and the hills, and the opportunity to welcome you the athletes, your travelling companions and your families in a first class sports facility as the Riccione Swimming Stadium.
What makes us even more proud is that on this occasion we will not only host simple athletes or future champions, but young men and women that besides improving, competing and trying to break records, have as their ultimate goal to help those in water who are in difficulty and therefore the objective to save lives.
So then, let the winners be the values of sport, healthy competition and friendship among the people.
