As President of WAKO IF I congratulate our colleagues in Germany and Switzerland with their recognition by their respective Olympic Committees.
This is a great achievement for both federations. We know that the process in Germany have been long and complex but with good and focused leadership of president Mr Schorn, vice president Mr. Brunnbauer and their team WAKO Germany could finally succeed to get this very important recognition.
Symbolically it is also important that founding members of WAKO like Germany and Switzerland have got their recognition. WAKO shows even more strenght.
