Fresh winds arrive from Ibero-America and we all need good news. This Friday the President of the International Judo Federation (IJF), Marius Vizer, received a visit from Carlos Zegarra, Vice President of the IJF and President of the Panamerican Judo Confederation. With Carlos comes good news for judo!
Marius Vizer and Carlos Zegarra

Mr Vizer and Mr Zegarra spoke about the many development projects that have been launched in Ibero-America. Among them, one stands out: the distribution, for the first time, of a television signal to all the channels. It is a significant step because it means bringing judo to every home in the American continent; a more visible, cheaper and, therefore, more universal judo. 

Marius Vizer said, “I thank Carlos Zegarra for his visit to the presidential office, for the exchange of opinions and for the good work with judo in Ibero-America." 

Much remains to be done, as always, but the news brought by Carlos is another step in the right direction.
