All our preparations are at the final stage. Now we are working on the creation of a training and testing center for athletes with a budget of 25 million liras”, – the rector of the University said.The rector added that optimal conditions for training at the world level will be created here. Accommodation of athletes is planned to be organized on the lake Burdur, where a hotel for 120 seats will be built.
