This is the first time we are hosting an event of this scale in Kazakhstan. In 2018, the National Ski Centre in Shchuchinsk was opened, which has passed the International Biathlon Union (IBU) certification. As a result, it received an "A" category license, which allows it to host the largest international competitions. Having hosted the Open Asian Championship this year, we tested the Centre’s readiness to welcome other large events. Hosting the Youth & Junior World Championships is an important milestone in the history of biathlon in Kazakhstan. We believe that this event will give an impetus to the development of children’s and youth sports in our country
