From February 11 to 18, 2017, French swimming clubs Club de Natation des Epinettes de Paris and Canet 66 from Canet-en-Roussillon trained at Swimming Pools Kantrida to successfully continue competing in national swimming championship.
Coach of Epinettes de Paris Frederic Sadys points out that they decided to come to Rijeka considering the offered training conditions, but also the fact that Croats are truly sports nation.
"Our young swimmer, who are readying for national junior championship, had perfect conditions to train. We are glad we came to Rijeka, and it happened thanks to tourist agency Stadium 360 and Ms. Anne Caçador," Sadys said.
Club's president Laurent Regna joins in praising.
"We like Rijeka, both city and the conditions we had here, thanks to our hosts. We are happy to be near the sea. It's not easy to find good conditions to train and I am sure we will come to your city again," Regna said.
Except for swimming, young swimmers used their time in Croatia for a trip to Pula, Grožnjan and Rovinj.
