European Games Highlights
Beginning in 2015, the European Games were first held in Baku, Azerbaijan. The games have been criticized for being an unnecessary addition to the sporting calendar. That is due to the lack of high quality in totem events like swimming and athletics. Since they were held in Azerbaijan for the inaugural year, several organizations also called out for the athletes to speak against human rights violations. Many regime opponents were jailed in the run-up to the games.
