And as was the case throughout the competition, local spectators and television viewers were treated to an exciting and hotly contested competition with top performances from our military and Olympic athletes!
This final competition of the World Military Championship was exciting and very close as evidenced by the fact that after the swimming, fencing and equestrian events, all teams entered the Laser Run with a chance of a medal.
