RE:                 ANOC meetings – Lausanne -  June 13-14. 2013


I had the opportunity along with Riccardo Fraccari to attend and meet a number of NOC and IOC members during the ANOC General Assembly in Lausanne.


Also, joining us was Carlos Garcia, who has recently joint our “team” as an “international relations” expert. There were 201 NOCs in attendance and about 30 IOC members. We spent most of the time at the General Assembly, as well as attending several receptions given by ANOC and the IOC.


We are still definitely in the running, but it is an uphill battle due to Wrestling receiving considerable publicity and sympathy.


That’s why we need to maximize our own publicly while making contacts with IOC members whenever and wherever during the next “84” days.
