The president of the Gaúcha Sports Federation of Eisstocksport (FGDE), Sérgio Böhm, does not accompany the delegation in this edition of the sporting event, but is in the crowd for the good performance of the competitors in the disputes. However, he regretted the difficulties imposed by Canada for the issuance of visas, which made it impossible for more athletes to participate in the competition. “We stayed for more than six months in bureaucratic negotiations and removals and even paying all the fees we had no return for new visas. Those who leave already had a visa or have an American visa, ”he says.
