En Kiev, one of the most important venues of the event and the place where the final of the tournament was played, great moments full of emotion were experienced. The kyiv Olympic was the venue where part of the Group D matches were played, made up of Ukraine (the host), Sweden, England and France, the first two teams being two teams that wear yellow, a touch of color that appears in the Kiev'12 of the new collection.
