Juha Halme, the Competition Manager of the 2017 IBSA Goalball European Championships, is the nineteenth writer in the Pajulahti 2017 blog.
Halme has plenty of experience from various roles in organizing international goalball tournaments around the world. Even though Finland has a reputation of being able to put together high quality tournaments, Halme points out that the organizers of the European Championships couldn’t have afforded to settle for what they already had. You must be able to improve tournament after tournament.
