.- World Youth Day 2011 organizers have said they are “proud” of the young people who participated in last week’s events in Madrid.

The director of communications for World Youth Day, Marieta Jaureguizar, told Europa Press on Aug. 22 that organizers are“thrilled” that the event took place without incident and that so many young people from all over the world displayed such exemplary behavior.
“We hope that they enjoyed it very much and that it was an important experience for each one of them,” Jauraguizar said.  She added that the event was also “a harsh yet wonderful professional and personal experience” for organizers. 
The World Youth Day organizating committee said the event “surpassed all expectations” and it expressed thanks to civil officials and the young people who attended.
