I have to say, I enjoyed all about my trip to Minsk: the hotel, ten minute walk to the stadium, the huge Transformer made by Minsk Tractor Works, and of course the Dinamo Stadium.

Day 2 showed how much Team Europe wanted to win and what happens when you get a team with some fine successes and some surprises! Team Europe battled to the very end with Team USA, winning 729.5-601.5. Amel Tuka gave Team Europe the final win in the mixed relay.

The Europeans' dream came thought with US accepting the challenge.. Now to get a second edition! Belarus wants to host in 2021!
