Thanks to everyone who made it possible for our teams to go to Koc, Turkey. The event was fantastic despite the hot sun and wild dogs on the streets. Nevertheless, I have understood that Turkey is not for me – I just can’t stand the way of life and attitude towards other people, i.e. “nu beri bezplatna!” 😦
Anyway, here is the complete Tab of Euros 2007 (to open the file change its extension from *.pdf to *.xls). If we look for our teams, then this was not the most successful Euros; however, one must acknowledge that each team had one novice debater that makes it a larger achievement than it actually may sound:
SSE Riga LMT B (Martin Kuusmaa & Kristina Saudargaite) got 60th ESL place (133rd out of 168 teams);
SSE Riga LMT A (Egle Murauskaite & Arvydas Ziobakas) got 71st ESL place (145th out of 168 teams).
Kristina Saudargaite got 250th Speaker place out of 336;
Martin Kuusmaa got 265th Speaker place;
Egle Murauskaite got 268th Speaker place;
Arvydas Ziobakas got 303rd Speaker place.
As said before, even if the results don’t look too astonishing as this moment, I believe that our debaters are able to perform much better & I believe that they will prove it next time!
