Győr Mayor Zsolt Borkai has declared his city has held the best European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) of all time as the event drew to a close today.

Borkai, who presided over the Organising Committee for the event and won the pommel horse gold medal at the 1988 Olympics in Seoul, thanked all stakeholders for their help in delivering the EYOF.

The former head of the Hungarian Olympic Committee (MOB) also said he hoped athletes from the host country who competed at the EYOF would go on to represent the nation at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

"People tend to say in connection with the International Swimming Federation World Aquatics Championships happening right now in Budapest, that Hungary could organise the best World Aquatic Championship of all times" Borkai said.

"I can proudly announce Győr organised the best EYOF of all time.

"I would like to thank everyone, who helped to achieve success; the citizens of Győr, for supporting the event with great enthusiasm, so Győr could organise such a grandiose EYOF. 

"Győr proved that with collaboration great thing could be achieved."

Current MOB President Krisztián Kulcsár also hailed the success of the event and praised the contribution of the European Olympic Committees, the city and volunteers who helped out during the competition.

"We stand proudly," he said. 

"I thank Győr, the leaders of the city and the Organising Committee, that they organised the EYOF on a very high level, never seen before in every aspect: the sport facilities, the circumstances of the accommodations, the catering and also the transport are significant parts of an enormous event like this, and everything worked perfectly in Győr. 

"Special thanks to the citizens of Győr for their hospitality, and the volunteers for their support."
