Dear Sports Friends,

After the Summer Deaflympics that we successfully hosted in Samsun in 2017, we are happy to host the Winter Deaflympics now.

I would like to thank those who contributed to bringing the Winter Deaflymipics, which is one of the largest sports organizations in the world, to our country.

Our country has become a country that stands out and is followed with admiration in all kinds of international sports organizations, with the facility development initiative carried out under the leadership of our President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. Now we are proud to host another such prestigious organization.

The delegations that will come to our country for the Winter Deaflympics will find an environment where they will feel at home with the hospitality of the Anatolian people. I believe this with all my heart, you will leave our beautiful country with unforgettable memories and friendships.

I would like to welcome our valued guests and wish them success in the competitions

Minister of Youth and Sports
Dr. Osman Aşkın Bak
