Meanwhile, in the face of terrorism concerns, the British Olympic Committee (BOA) has reassured the athletes with a statement fully believing in security measures at EYOF. BOA said that the threat of terrorism is not only a concern for winter sports but also for summer sporting events as well as other tournaments around the world.

This year’s EYOF event was originally hosted for Sarajevo but was later exchanged with Erzurum (winning the bid to host EYOF 2019) because Bosnia said it had no time to prepare infrastructure and organization.
