The “Maximus Project” was created by the International Wheelchair Rugby Federation (IWRF) and was organized by the Wildboars Wheelchair Rugby Association for the very first time in Europe. The essence of the program (which is from 22 Jan till 25th Jan 2014) is to provide training for the countries, which are developing in the sport in a week-long clinic, and a tournament where the participant teams can face each other.
Teams of Greece, Czech Republic, Germany, Israel and Russia will represent their countries beside Hungary. The supporters of the event are The Hungarian Paralympics Committee and the Ministry of Human Resources. The patron is Dr. István Simicskó, State Secretary of Sport and Youth Affairs.
The goal is that this event will give a boost to the sport and in a few years, Hungary might have its own national team. So if you think are tough enough, then you are half way there to being good enough!
