XVI IFSC PLENARY ASSEMBLY OPENS WITH MESSAGE FROM IOC PRESIDENT
The XVI Plenary Assembly of the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) opened today with a video message from International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach.
In his message, the IOC President congratulated the IFSC and its delegates for overcoming the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and their ability to organise a virtual congress.
“We have seen over the past weeks and months that whether in sport or in life, we are always stronger together. This is why we are happy to have such reliable partners, like the IFSC, at our side,”
Bach told the more than 60 National Federations gathered virtually for the annual congress.
The XVI Plenary Assembly was originally scheduled to be held in Limassol (CYP) on March 13 and 14 but was moved online as a result of the pandemic.
A Plenary Assembly in writing took place on May 29 — also in the form of a teleconference — for the approval of the 2019 audit and financial reports, and 2020 budget.
