World Championship A / B classes took place from 07/29/2018 to 08/04/2019 in Pazardzhik, Bulgaria.
The championship was attended by representatives of all countries registered in the NAVIGA A/B section, and this year their number increased due to the team of Belarus led by eminent athlete Igor Borisov.
At the championship 108 models were presented.
Prior to the opening of the championship on July 30, 2019 a technical conference was held at the beginning of which the leader of the A/B section asked and invited the participants to voluntarily provide humane assistance to the long-term organizer and Technical Director of the World and European Championships held in Pazardzhik, Mr. Dimitar Ganchev, for the treatment of which urgent surgery is necessary in the Turkish blade. Representatives of all teams unanimously, as far as possible, responded to this proposal!
It would be nice if the representatives of other sections of the NAVIGA would take part in this humane action!
After the technical conference, a meeting of the panel of judges was held.
Despite the hot weather, the championship was held at a high sports level, and 4 world records were set – 2 juniors and 2 seniors.
It should be noted that along with the unbearable heat, everyone worked with great dedication and used every opportunity for intensive training to achieve high sports results.
Competitions were held in a friendly atmosphere without protests.
The panel of judges led by the chief referee Svetlomira Sandeva held the championship with high professionalism and objectivity.
During the championship, proposals for introducing some changes to the rules, which will be made by the section leader and submitted to NAVIGA for approval, were discussed.
