IFSC PRESIDENT MARCO SCOLARIS IN ROME, AS ITALIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE PRESENTS AWARD TO IOC PRESIDENT THOMAS BACH
The President of the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) Marco Scolaris traveled to Rome, Italy, last Friday, and attended the ceremony organised by the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) to award International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach with the Collare d’Oro – the highest award of CONI.
The award was presented by CONI President and IOC member Giovanni Malagò; while IOC Executive Board member Ivo Ferriani and IOC Honorary Members Mario Pescante, Franco Carraro and Manuela Di Centa took to the stage to pay tribute.
Accepting the award, President Bach said:
“This award truly belongs to the entire IOC and the whole of the Olympic Movement. Because, without the support of so many around the globe, our Olympic mission to make the world a better place through sport could never be accomplished.”
