It is with great sadness that we received the news of the passing of Mr. Bruno Grandi, former President of the International Gymnastics Federation, IOC member and ASOIF Council member, a unique professional and a good friend.
Mr. Bruno Grandi 1934 - 2019

Bruno Grandi was a great figure of sports, who dedicated his entire life to the service of sport, fostering its values and inspiring generations of champions. His sterling work, his unflagging energy and visionary leadership will never be forgotten.

On behalf of the International Judo Federation, I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family and to the Gymnastics Family.

May he rest in peace.

IJF President Mr. Marius L. Vizer
