SportAccord membership workshop 2017

Jenny Mann (IOC)SportAccordSportAccord membership workshop was held in Lausanne (Switzerland). We (me and IUKL vice-President Igor Solodov) took part of this event. We got a lot of useful information from them.
Personal meetings with sport federations were the second day of this workshop. We introduced them kettlebell sport, showed our presentation and told about all aspects of the work of IUKL.
International Olympic Committee representatives were there too. They like our sport and our meeting was very friendly.
I hope they will make a decision about IUKL membership very soon. It will be biggest step of the long way to Olympics!
