Last changes in the sports program
The last changes in the sports program for Tarragona 2018 are expected to be approved during the ICMG Executive Committee meeting on May 9th. There are only 9 sports events out of the starting 237 that may be cancelled from the Games final sports program due to a lack of entries. It is important to emphasize that this is absolutely normal. For example, in the Mersin Mediterranean Games around fifty events were cancelled and the number of entries for some of the events was quite low. However, Tarragona 2018 wants to guarantee a great participation in all its sports events.
Last coordination meeting
The last coordination meeting before the start of the Games took place yesterday. The President and other members of the ICMG chaired the meeting together with Tarragona 2018’s Executive Director, Víctor Sánchez, the Mediterranean Games Commissioner, Javier Villamayor, the President of the Spanish Olympic Committee, Alejandro Blanco, the Sports Minister, Elisa Vedrina, and the various directors of the Games’ organization.
