XIII GSSE: The Numbers Speak For Themselves

NICOSIA, 4 June 2009 - A record total of 3,291 accreditations have so far been given out at the XIII Games of the Small States of Europe, a figure that is predicted to slowly climb as late accreditation requests are still on demand.

The most striking statistic was the number of athletes taking part at the Games which is a new record for the event. At this year’s XIII GSSE, a total of 843 athletes took part - a bigger figure when compared to the Monaco Games of 1997 when 799 athletes took part. In the first GSSE event, 24 years ago, 222 athletes took part.

The number of coaching staff reached 210 this year whilst the number of judges was 355.

With regards to figures concerned with VIPs, Heads of States, Ministers and other high ranking sports officials, accreditations reached 286 with the Heads of the Team Delegations and other team officials rising to 90.

There was also a significant increase in the number of media personnel attending the Games. A total of 334 media representatives and correspondents, 103 from abroad, arrived to cover the event.

The total amount of medical staff and physiotherapists reached 247 people (43 doctors, 145 nurses and 59 physiotherapists).

The entire event is aided by the help of 739 volunteer workers who are considered “the heart and soul” of the event and who never failed in lending their immense assistance to make sure this year’s XIII GSSE will be a memorable occasion. The Organising Committee of the Games would like to offer its warmest thanks to the volunteer workers for their valuable assistance.
