IJF President end of the year message
Lettera del Presidente IJF
Dear Judo Family Members, IJF Partners, Media Representatives and Judo Lovers,
We are concluding a quite successful 2017, with a great World Championship held in Budapest in August, new partnerships with CNN and some sponsors, and a great edition of the World Masters held mid-December in St. Petersburg.
I want to thank and to congratulate all the organizers of Judo World Tour events, all the IJF Executive Committee members and Commissions, the Continental Unions, the athletes, the National Federations, the referees, the coaches and the IJF Team for their dedication in all the activities throughout the year.
On the occasion of the festive season, I want to wish all of you happy holidays and many achievements for 2018, along with memorable judo moments!
Marius L. Vizer
International Judo Federation
