According to Maxim Urazov, the Director General of the Winter Universiade 2019 Executive Directorate, the work of the test event Organizing Committee does not stop there. The results await to be summed up. Maxim Urazov also stressed: "We will carry out more analytical work. Quality is about the little things, so we will continue to work on all the details. We have tested a number of services, ranging from airport meetings to holding the athletes’ awarding ceremonies. We have managed to obtain a very high-quality TV broadcast picture. According to many experts, it is a world-class TV picture.  That is very important, because the Winter Universiade 2019 will be watched by people around the world. This year, we have launched a new convenient accreditation system. However, there is still work to be done. After the races, we will hold debriefings and collect feedback from all. We have the whole year and other test events to work out and make all preps even more qualitative. We have conducted awesome competitions, and it is a great reason to move on."

The Closing Ceremony of the test event was attended by acting Minister of Sport of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Sergey Alekseev. He said that the overall quality of the competitions was positive: "Such level of course preparations in Krasnoyarsk has been demonstrated for the first time. Now we will sum up the results comprehensively. It is important for us how the employees worked in each area. Only in combination of joining efforts, you can make a good event. If to speak about sports results, I wish the Krasnoyarsk athletes performed better. Perhaps, emotional burden was a little bit of a disturbance there. We have something to work on. We hope that our guys will get on the country’s national team and will perform at the Winter Universiade 2019 next year."
