Dear Judo Family Members, IJF Partners, Media Representatives and Judo Lovers,

As another year comes to an end with great Judo moments, I want to thank and congratulate all the organizers of the World Judo Tour, Executive Committee Members and Commissions, the Continental Unions, the National Federations, the athletes, the coaches, the referees and the IJF Team for their sterling work, their boundless enthusiasm and dedication.

We have seen a Judo year filled with emotion and great performances, rising stars and new talents, outstanding champions who inspire the young generations as well as remarkable events, with enthousiastic fans and a lot of media attention.

I wish you all the best for the festive season and a prosperous new year filled with many achievements and fulfilment in your endeavours!
