“You represent a successful field, Georgian sport.
“Nowadays, Georgia is famous for its sportsmen and women in the world, thanks to your diverse gold, silver and bronze medals brought to our country. I strongly believe that you will manage to succeed in Minsk as well and I will be there with you. I will support you in order to be utterly successful once more.
“Sport is more than its different aspects. Sport is the country’s image of health. Positive awareness is significant for such a small country that needs to be well-known. This is your achievement and on behalf of myself, as the President of Georgia, I extend my gratitude to you.
“All of Georgia and I are proud of your success. I wish you great success in Minsk and I know that you can attain it,” stated President Zourabichvili at the reception ceremony.
