FISU at SportAccord Convention 2017: Day 4

 

 

AARHUS - The Day 4 for FISU delegation at #SAC2017 in Aarhus brought one more series of productive meetings. It started with International World Games Association Honorary President Ron Froehlich visiting the FISU booth to share with FISU President Oleg Matytsin his experience of organising big multisport events. It was followed by meetings with Borislav Pelevic, President of World Association of Kickboxing Organisations and Nenad Lalovic, United World Wrestling President as combat sports are an important part of the FISU programme.

The FISU President, as a former table tennis athlete, had a chance to challenge France’s Jean Philippe Gatien, former World Champion and Olympic medalist.
