From May 22nd to 24th, both IFSC President Marco Scolaris and Head of Olympic Coordination Jérôme Meyer attended their fourth meeting in Tokyo with the Tokyo Organising Committee of Olympic and Paralympic Games’ (TOCOG) delegation.
This fourth meeting, mainly run together with the FIBA, focused on the event venue. The focus was on discerning the best possible layout of the venue so that both sports could take maximum advantage of the event and offer an amazing show, as well as the best conditions to compete. The test event and its organisation were also among the discussions.
“There are many challenges ahead of us, but I have the feeling that visit after visit with TOCOG we work more and more together as a team”, said President Scolaris.
Finally, the visit provided the opportunity for a meeting between President Scolaris and JMSCA leaders regarding preparations for the IFSC World Championships in 2019.
