Upper Austria as the centre of European Police Sports

This year, the 14th European Police Championships Winter 2017 will be held in Hinterstoder and in Rosenau am Hengstpass. From the 6th to the 13th of March, the „Union Sportive Des Polices D’Europe“ (USPE) will turn Upper Austria  2017 into the centre of European police sports. With its world cup track, last used in 2016, Hinterstoder will be able to offer perfect conditions for our skiing athletes. All cross-country skiers and biathletes can look forward to the biathlon and cross-country arena in Rosenau am Hengstpass, which has already been proven to be fit for European Championships.

I would like to thank the organising team around Lieutenant Karl Sternberger for their efforts and their commitment. Finally, to all athletes, I wish you successful competitions free from injuries and hope you enjoy your time in the beautiful region of Upper Austria.

Dr. Josef Pühringer

Governor of Upper Austria
