Bright Year, Bright You!


…This is the motto of the 2nd European Games that will be held in Minsk. Apart from Belarus the Netherlands, the UK, Poland, Russia and Turkey applied to host the games. Let’s describe this forthcoming important event in numbers.  

The 2nd European Games, one of the most important European sporting events, will be held in Minsk on June 21–30, 2019. During the 45th meeting of the EOС General Assembly, held in Minsk in October, 2016, Belarus was selected as the host country for the 2nd European Games. The majority of sporting competitions will offer qualification opportunities for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

4000 sportsmen
from 50 countries will be competing in 15 sports. They are: badminton, basketball 3x3, boxing, wrestling (Greco-Roman, free-style wrestling, female wrestling), cycling (bicycle track and high-way), gymnastics (Olympic gymnastics, eurythmics, acrobatics, aerobics and rebound-tumbling), canoe sprint, judo, karate, athletics, sambo, archery, shooting (rifle and pistol shooting, trapshooting), table tennis, beach football.

In the English version of the motto of the 2nd European Games’ the word “bright” is used two times. It goes like: Bright Year, Bright You. The first two letters are the abbreviation BY that stands for Belarus. The Russian and the Belarusian variants of the motto are translated word by word as follows: “the Time for Bright Victories”. The Flower of Fern is the logo of the 2nd European Games (the competition will be held on the eve of Kupala Night). The mascot hasn’t been announced yet, but the organizers have decided that it would be much more interesting to have it. That’s why an open contest has been announced and the winning idea will be used as the basis for creating the mascot of the Games.
