    Today at the SportAccord was the day of the AIMS Annual General Assembly. The IDBF is an AIMS Member but many people of the dragon boat community of Europe don’t know about AIMS and the important role of this organization within the IOC and the GAISF. I attended the Assembly together with Alan Van Caubergh and Mike Thomas IDBF President. We strongly support AIMS efforts to make all GAISF members to be also automatically IOC recognized.

And the video speech of Thomas Bach, IOC President. He will arrive tomorrow. Claudio Schermi EDBF President

    Many friends of the dragon boat community of Europe asked me about SportAccord. I will try in this days to explain how important it is for the dragon boat family to be “where the sport meets”. Claudio Schermi EDBF President
