The teams from Iceland and Mexico have one athlete each, while Lichtenstein represented by two athletes.
Oleg Matytsin, FISU President, shared his impressions on the record-breaking number of countries participating in the Games in Krasnoyarsk: ‘We have experienced plenty of emotions over the past days. Thanks to our empathy towards athletes, we shared with them the joy of victory and the disappointment of defeat. And, most importantly, we experienced sincere admiration for the commitment from all those who contributed to this brightest winter sports festival of the year! Krasnoyarsk has set new standards for preparation and hospitality. The days that we spent here, in the heart of Siberia, will always remain in our memory! Allow me to thank one more time the leadership of Russia, Krasnoyarsk region, the city of Krasnoyarsk, the Directorate of the Universiade for the feelings of joy that you offered to the university sports world! I also thank my colleagues from FISU and the international winter sports federations. It is their efforts that have always made the Universiade one of the best international competitions in winter sports. I hope we will maintain this in future. Allow me to extend special thanks to a particular group of people without whom the Universiade would have not been possible. I am speaking of course of the volunteers. From early morning till night they were among us, with a constant smile on their face, always ready to help. The warmth of their hearts even melted snow on the streets of Krasnoyarsk. Let us give them a round of applause!'.
