aced with the high intensity of
the SportAccord Convention
programme of meetings,
presentations and displays, many
organisers, speakers and delegates
count on good coffee to keep going.
This year the fuel for this 14th edition
of the event is provided by Nespresso,
who are marking some milestones in
their own history by joining the ranks
of the Convention’s Gold Partners.
Nespresso has built a reputation for
excellence during its 30-year history
and its roots go back even further
as part of the 150-year-old Nestlé
empire. Such strong traditions ensure
that confidence in the brand and
the product is high, and the age-old
commitment to customer service and
quality of ingredients is still as fresh as
the coffee.

AARHUS TO HOST
2017 CONVENTION
The importance of listening to youngsters
in the digital age came to the fore during
the MediaAccord Foundation Meeting at
SportAccord Convention World Sport &
Business Summit.
The Meeting, which was led by
Euronews CEO Michael Peters and held
ahead of the launch of MediaAccord at
the 2016 Convention, brought together
members of various strands of the
arhus in Denmark was
unveiled as the host of
SportAccord Convention
2017 last night during an enthralling
opening ceremony for this year’s
event at the SwissTech Convention
Center in Lausanne.
The second largest city in
Denmark will be the European
Capital of Culture next year, giving
stakeholders in international sport
the perfect opportunity to visit the
vibrant and creative city on the
east coast of the Jutland peninsula,
with the Convention scheduled for
April 2-7.
The news was revealed during an
opening ceremony that featured a
stunning performance from students
at the world-famous Rudra-Béjart
school of theatre and ballet in
Lausanne, as well as speeches
from the Convention’s President,
Francesco Ricci Bitti; International
Olympic Committee President
Thomas Bach; Canton of Vaud Head
of Economy and Sport, Philippe
Leuba; and Municipal Councillor of
Sport, Marc Vuilleumier.
“It is a pleasure to bring
SportAccord Convention to Aarhus,
Denmark,” Ricci Bitti, who is also
President of the Association of
Summer Olympic International
Federations (ASOIF), said.
“I am confident that our
collaboration will provide an
excellent platform for Aarhus and
Sport Event Denmark to continue
to support the international
sport community, while meeting
the needs of our stakeholders
and delegates, giving them the
opportunity to embrace and
experience a country that is
passionate about sport.”
Denmark is a natural destination
for sport’s No.1 meeting place,
considering Sport Event Denmark’s
long-term support for the
Convention.
“To be given the opportunity to
invite the world of sport to Aarhus
means a lot to us,” Sport Event
Denmark CEO Lars Lundov told
The Daily.
“Every year, since the very first
SportAccord Convention in 2003,
Sport Event Denmark has been
increasing its participation levels in
the event, from Bronze Partner to
Silver Partner and now Gold Partner
for several years.
“Next year we take the next
step whilst continuing our gold
partnership.”
The Convention will be visiting
a country with a rich tradition of
hosting sporting events, summits,
congresses and conferences, as
outlined by Lundov.
“In 2003 Denmark played host
to the WADA World Congress on
Doping in Sport,” he added.
“Since then Denmark has
staged many more sport summits
and congresses for International
Federations and we always take
the opportunity to demonstrate our
unparalleled passion for hosting
events.
“In 2009 Denmark hosted the IOC
Session and Olympic Congress, and
with the hosting of SportAccord
Convention next year, we hope that
visitors will enjoy a memorable stay
in Denmark and will return home
with an expanded and strengthened
network established through lots of
golden moments.”
The credentials of Aarhus as a host
of sporting events are beyond doubt.
The city has hosted several
major international events,

company’s story started. Housed in
three restored, historic buildings, it will
feature a Nespresso presence and will
also support the status of Nespresso
as not just a coffee – it is a culture, an
impressive history and an authentic
experience that combines perfection,
pleasure, simplicity and aesthetics.
Nespresso has evolved from being the
pioneer and trendsetter into the market
leader in portioned coffee.
Nespresso doesn’t have an exhibition
stand at SportAccord Convention. Nor
does it have speakers, workshops or
forums. Instead Nespresso delivers its
message through the coffee which can
be found in almost every corner of the
Convention.
It also has parallels with the values
of the Convention and the sporting
world through the three pillars of its
programme – Quality, Sustainability,
Productivity – and its links with many
IFs. Like them, Nespresso is based in
Lausanne and is recognised as a world
champion.
The Gold Partner commitment at
SportAccord Convention came from
a desire to support the IFs within the
Nespresso customer base and to help to
fly the flag for the Canton of Vaud.
There are 50 machines around the
SwissTech Convention Center, with
delegates able to try four pods carefully
selected from the Nespresso B2B range
including the international flavours of
India and Guatemala.
The Nespresso AAA programme
works with more than 70,000 farmers
in 12 countries, but only between one
and two per cent of the world’s coffee
crop fulfils the company’s conditions
around taste and aromatic profile, and
the exacting standards of quality and
sustainability.
By maintaining long-term
relationships with the farmers and their
local communities, Nespresso can select
individual crops according to quality
and flavour profile and take coffee
made using the finest beans from the
best coffee-growing areas to the cups of
consumers around the world.
The Nespresso buying team do not
deal in commodity exchanges; they
know exactly what they buy and how
it tastes.
The commitment to quality continues
through the most rigorous attention to
detail in developing smartly designed
and easy-to-use machines which
enhance the aroma and flavour to create
the perfect cup of coffee.
A visit to any of the Nespresso outlets
at SportAccord Convention gives
an idea of the dedication to product
innovation. Since 1986 Nespresso has
created over 100 Grands Crus. Today,
the range of Nespresso Grand Cru
includes 23 Grands Crus B2C and 11
Grands Crus B2B.
Orders are received through a
network of 450 boutiques in 258 cities
in 55 countries, by phone through the
Nespresso customer service team and
via apps for iPhone, iPad and Android,
not forgetting the online service at
www.nespresso.com.
FAI IS HOPING TO SOAR
AFTER MILESTONE EVENT
John Grubbström, President of FAI,
the global governing body of air
sports, is keen to build on the progress
made by the sport during a busy
2015 that reached a crescendo with
the World Air Games in Dubai in
November.
The event comprised competitions
in parachuting, hang gliding, glider
aerobatics, aeromodelling, amateurbuilt and experimental aircraft,
gyrocopters, ballooning, helicopters,
microlights and paramotors.
“Looking back to 2015, it was a
milestone year for FAI,” Grubbström
told The Daily.
“The FAI World Air Games Dubai
2015 was the biggest multi-air sports
event ever organised. More than 900
athletes competed in 11 air sports at
six venues for 12 days. The success
achieved in terms of competitions, as
well as media and public attention,
was fantastic.
“I am really proud of how the
whole FAI community got into
action to collaborate closely with the
Organising Committee. We fulfilled
FAI’s mission to promote air sports
and we can now build on this success
to further develop our activities.”
Attention will now turn to future
editions of the event and capitalising

on the growing popularity of air sports
in key markets.
“We are now focusing on improving
the format of our competitions to
make them more media-friendly and
public-friendly,” Grubbström added.
“We have also opened the bidding
process for the next FAI World Air
Games as we want to make sure that
the future organiser has sufficient
time to prepare the next edition of the
Federation’s flagship competition.
“From small model aircraft to large
hot air balloons, the diversity of our
sports is exceptional. Consequently,
the level of the activities, competitions
and records is high, and to my mind
the challenge is to ensure we have
enough resources and manpower to
manage, cover and develop them at a
top standard.
“There has also been an increase
in FAI’s presence in Asia, where air
sports are growing rapidly.”
Grubbström added that he was
looking forward to exchanging
ideas with other stakeholders in
international sport at SportAccord
Convention this week in Lausanne.
He said: “It is a pleasure for me to
participate in the Convention and to
discuss interesting topics with people
from the whole world of sports.”

by taking on these issues. We can

T
he confrontation with
cycling concluded with the
election of new leadership,
which has made major changes
to the running of the sport. Fuller
co-founded #NewFifaNow in 2014
with the aim of not just changing
the organisation’s leaders, but also
pushing for the “same level of
transparency and accountability
that most citizens expect of their
governments, major institutions
and organisations”.
“Football and other
sports should be
pleased to be
accountable
and open.
It should be
something
they strive
for,” he said. “They shouldn’t be
running away from this stuff. Fifa
would be so much richer if it was
clean. If money was going to the
right places, football would be
doing vastly better.
“I don’t think the majority of
people in sports governance are
there to steal, but they live in a
bubble and can’t see how bad it has
got and what the implications are
going to be.”
While Fuller has been proved
to be on the right side of history
considering the regime changes
in cycling and football, he has
undoubtedly taken risks in his public
stance against sports. While some
brands might argue that they are
not responsible for the actions of the
rights-holders they associate with
and it is not their job to investigate
corruption, SKINS’ own attitude
perhaps fits in with the bright and
brash clothing they produce for
golf, cycling, triathlon and snow
sports.
Fuller explained that the
company will always ask questions
of its partners, and the fact that it
ended a commercial agreement
with Melbourne Storm after just
three weeks in 2010 when the NRL
side was found to have broken
salary cap rules shows SKINS will
retain its course even if it takes a hit
in the pocket.
“We recognise that our brand
exposes us to charges of hypocrisy,
so we have to be loud – unlike
some competitors – and scream
from the rooftops that we are
taking a position,” Fuller said.
“Other commercial players in
sports are not doing what we do,
despite the fact many have much
greater resources.
“It’s really hard to tell what effect
the campaigns have had on the
business, but they have never been
about selling more products. The
campaigning is not sexy and does
‘I’m perceived as a
rabble-rouser, but
my intention is to be
honest and discuss

little to connect us with consumers,
but it is part of what we are.
“My objective is to try to reflect
a positive and optimistic outlook
for sport to understand what
the future could be if it drags
itself into the 21st century. I want
the heads of the federations to
understand how the rest of the
world expects sport to be, and
that it is answerable to the biggest
stakeholders in sport – us, the fans.
“There is a role for accountability
and embracing that will have a
positive impact on their business
and what they do. That’s what my
goal is.”

Meanwhile, Ingmar de Vos, President
of Fédération Equestre Internationale
(FEI), said the organisation wants to build
on its strong performance in 2015. He
said: “Television exposure and coverage

months, while Kate Caithness, President
of the World Curling Federation (WCF),
said the winter sport could only benefit
from Japan and the US achieving success

FRANCESCO RICCI BITTI
I hope that you were
all able to spend a
fruitful week, develop
new opportunities, and
reconnect with old friends
and colleagues
D
ear colleagues,
It was a great honour and pleasure to welcome you all for this
special edition of the SportAccord Convention having returned
to Lausanne, the Olympic Capital and home of international sport. Your
participation contributed to the success of this year’s Convention and
your enthusiasm and positive spirit helped to make our time spent
together productive and enjoyable.
The positive outcomes of the 2016 SportAccord Convention are of
particular importance as they follow a period of refocusing the vision
and mission of the event. I hope that you were all able to spend a
fruitful week, develop new opportunities, and reconnect with old
friends and colleagues.
This year’s edition of the SportAccord Convention has helped solidify
its place as a significant event in the international sporting calendar,
focussing on the needs of our members while connecting an industry
truly committed to developing sport as a whole. This would not have
been achievable without the City of Lausanne, Canton of Vaud and the
International Olympic Committee alongside our stakeholders, including
international federations, speakers, delegates, partners and media in
attendance. As a collective group, they gather each year to utilise the
Convention as a powerful platform to exchange ideas and information
for the common good of sport. A special thanks goes to our partners,
and in particular our gold partners, as well as the media for their
valuable cooperation and support.
I look forward to welcoming you all to the 2017 SportAccord
Convention in Aarhus, as it marks the 15th edition and is the first time
that the Convention will be held in Denmark.

PATRICK BAUMANN
D
ear colleagues and friends,
I hope you all enjoyed a great SportAccord Convention 2016
in our hometown Lausanne. We were delighted to welcome
you during this momentous week, one that I trust was successful for
everyone, and I would like to use this opportunity to thank the city of
Lausanne and the Canton the Vaud once again for welcoming us.
Having the undivided honour of being elected on 22 April 2016
during SportAccord’s General Assembly as President for a four-year
term, allow me to follow-up on my message communicated during this
meeting with regards to my vision for SportAccord’s future.
But firstly, I would like to inform you about the new SportAccord
Council which was appointed by our stakeholders in the weeks
following the election, and with whom I will have the pleasure to
closely work with:
Mr. P. Baumann, FIBA Secretary General (ASOIF)
Ms K. Caithness, WCF President (AIOWF)
Ms M. Casado, ITU President (ASOIF)
Mr R. Chiulli, UIM President (ARISF)
Mr S. Fox, IFMA Secretary General (AIMS)
Mr R. Fraccari, WBSC President (ARISF)
Mr G.F. Kasper, FIS President (AIOWF)
Mr N. Lalovic, UWW President (ASOIF)
Mr J. Perurena, IWGA President (Associate members)
Leaving the past year behind, the objective during the new cycle of
four years is to set up an organisation that listens to its members and,
within the means at disposal, implements their ideas and operates as
a service organisation which will open a new chapter for our sports
community
SportAccord is the only umbrella organisation, regrouping Olympic
and non-Olympic Federations, whether small or big ones. Its members
are the global base of the federative sporting structure in every corner
of the world. While they all have differences, they are the Voice of Sport.
This is a valuable asset, but also an important responsibility, which can
only become real if the SportAccord family is united and acts credibly,
individually and as a group. This being said, I very much look forward to
continuing as President of SportAccord, to collaborate closely with you
all for the sake of the sports movement worldwide.
In 2017 the SportAccord Convention will take place in the wonderful
city of Aarhus, Denmark from 2-7 April. We hope to see you there!

SOIF’s priority is to represent and
coordinate the common interests
of our members, the 28 Summer
Olympic IFs, and to ensure close
cooperation between them and various
stakeholders of the Olympic Movement
as well as other organisations.
Whilst we protect the authority,
independence and autonomy of our
member federations, we operate inside
the Olympic Movement, recognising
the importance of having a platform to
represent the common interests of the
IF families at large.
In this context we are one of the
three stakeholders of SportAccord
Convention, together with the
Winter Olympic IFs and SportAccord
Association. However we have always
stressed that this can only be effective

without duplication in terms of
representation and activity between the
various IF associations and SportAccord.
We believe that the 2016 edition of
SportAccord Convention, held in the
Olympic Capital of Lausanne, was a
success which showed the collaborative
spirit among the IF families.
For ASOIF, it was an important
platform to meet with all our members
at the General Assembly and hold
important working meetings with the
IOC and the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020
Organising Committees to discuss
Olympic Games preparations. The Rio
2016 Games are approaching rapidly
and SportAccord Convention came at a
fitting time to discuss in more details
the remaining challenges from an IF
angle. I want to thank the IFs for a
very constructive and forward-looking
discussion.
Another important and pressing topic
that was discussed during our General
Assembly is governance. As we are all
aware, there is no time to lose and we
took concrete measures to help our
federations to protect the integrity of
their organisations and sports in the
best way possible.
We also held Presidential elections
and I feel very honoured to be able
to serve the ASOIF organisation for
another four years.
We look forward to seeing you all in

E
very moment of every day,
millions of people are taking
part in sporting activities that
are managed by the Sport Federations
Members of ARISF, the Association of
IOC Recognised International Sports
Federations.
Our global movement was founded in
Switzerland in 1983 and is constituted
through and recognised by the
International Olympic Committee (IOC).
ARISF has the role to actively unite,
support and represent the interests of
the International Sports Federations
which have been granted recognition by
the International Olympic Committee as
per the Olympic Charter. ARISF represents
these Federations collectively as one of
the pillars to the Olympic Movement and
promotes the Olympic spirit through the
sports which they govern. Through ARISF,
the Member Federations maintain an
effective dialogue with the IOC and with
other sports organisations on matters
of common interest. Furthermore, ARISF
serves as the forum for its Member
Federations to exchange know-how
and expertise in all aspects of sports
governance and is an important
stakeholder of SportAccord.
ARISF counts nowadays 35
International Sports Federations who
together regroup over 3,500 National
Sports Federations, and is represented
in all countries and regions of the world.
Over 1.2 billion people in the world are
practicing an ARISF Federation sport:
they cannot be wrong.

T
he 2016 SportAccord Convention
took place in what was
undoubtedly a landmark year.
For many it was the homecoming for
which the Olympic Capital of Lausanne
was more than a fitting place. You could
feel the dynamic energy in every corner
of the convention.
There was a unique atmosphere with
important decisions and discussions
which benefitted every stakeholder in
the world of sport taking place daily.
The important cooperation between all
stakeholders from the IOC, SportAccord,
ASOIF, AIOWF, ARISF and AIMS and
other unified voices towards credibility
in sport, benefits our most important
assets - our youth and our athletes.
This common interest and the close
bonds between all these stakeholders
will continue far beyond the meeting
8 – WELCOME
rooms. This strong collaboration of
exchanging and sharing knowledge, and
maintaining effective communication
with the IOC, SportAccord and other
sports organisation on common
interests makes the SportAccord
Convention an important date on our
sporting calendar.
Bringing together friends and
colleagues at one location, networking
opportunities with the world leaders in
sport present and within reach; all this
contributes to amazing results.
I would like to congratulate the
SportAccord Convention for its return to
Lausanne. The SportAccord Convention
is as important for sports that are in
the Olympic Programme or recognised
by the IOC as it is for those striving for
IOC recognition. Important relationships

through engaging in cultural and social

ANNUAL REVIEW
SPORTACCORD
S
ince the SportAccord Statutory
General Assembly of 2015 in
Sochi, Russia, the organisation has
undergone significant changes.
The objective for the upcoming four
years is to set up an organisation that
listens to its members and, within the
means at its disposal, implements
their ideas and operates as a service
organisation focusing on the following
main areas:
1) SportAccord Convention and Forum
The Convention and Forum are
respected core activities within and
for the SportAccord family which are
organised through a legally separate
Association. However, these events need
to be protected and strengthened, so
that they are sustainable in the long
run and remain the place to be for the
world of sport.
2) Doping Free Sports Unit
The activity related to the Doping
Free Sports Unit (DFSU) is critical and
provides a valuable service to our
members. In view of the developments
in the world of sport, this service
becomes even more important
12 – ANNUAL REVIEW
and needs to be protected and
strengthened, so that it can continue
to operate in a satisfactory and
sustainable manner for all members.
Since mid-2015 there has been
a significant increase in the DFSU
activities provided to SportAccord
Members and this increase also
continues to date.
3) Specialised Games
The specialised Games are exceptional
opportunities to serve the needs of
different groups of our members. The
challenge is to find hosts, therefore
these Games need to be economically
viable and exciting for all and this is
only possible with the full participation
and commitment of all sports and
parties concerned.
There is an interest for future World
Mind Games, Urban Games and Artistic
Games although the developments
are at an early stage. In addition, some
cities have indicated their interest in
hosting the next edition of the World
Combat Games. The Combat sport
International Federations have also
confirmed their interest in organising
such Combat Games and details need to
be worked out among them, under the
coordination of the SportAccord office.
4) Transfer of Know-How
The renewed SportAccord has the
obligation to contribute to the wellbeing and the evolution of its members,
by sharing know-how and expertise. The
DFSU is one example and it seems that
there are interests in sharing expertise in
other areas such as event organisation,
broadcasting, legal services, etc.
5) .sport Initiative
The .sport initiative plays a significant
role as one key communication conduit.
In 2015, SportAccord has been working
with the global sport community to
defend and strengthen its application
for the .sport internet extension.
SportAccord has coordinated the
efforts of its Top Level Domain (TLD)
Policy Advisory Board to publish a set
of proposed final policy documents in
connection with the future operation of
the .SPORT TLD. While these documents
cannot be submitted until after
SportAccord signs a Registry Agreement
with ICANN, this important preparatory
work has been completed.

We can research, verify and validate any counterparty

A commercial partnership with:

ASOIF’s role has been to serve and
represent the Summer Olympic
International Federations in the most
competent, articulate and professional
manner on issues of common interest
in the Summer Olympic Games and the
Olympic Movement, and on any other
matter deemed necessary by the IFs.
The 2016 SportAccord Convention
saw our 28 members convene at
our annual General Assembly, where
they consented to a new governance
assessment tool, developed by the
ASOIF Governance Taskforce during
the previous months. This was an
important milestone in stepping up our
efforts of protecting sport’s integrity
and autonomy. The tool comprises a
comprehensive set of five key principles
and 50 indicators that are tailored to
the specific characteristics and needs of
sport organisations.
Over the course of 2016, the
Taskforce will contact all ASOIF
members in order to jointly evaluate
the current status of each member
Our members
voted for an
amendment
of the ASOIF statutes
which will enable IFs
“governing sports
included within the
programme for a
specific edition of
the Summer Olympic
Games” to become
‘Associate Members’
against these principles and indicators.
On another pressing topic, the fight
against doping, our member federations
heard an update about the anti-doping
study commissioned by ASOIF earlier
this year. The research explores the
current anti-doping activities and
processes of the ASOIF members. The
full report will be available and made
public later this year.
Furthermore, our members voted for
an amendment of the ASOIF statutes
which will enable IFs “governing sports
included within the events programme
for a specific edition of the Summer
Olympic Games” to become ‘Associate
Members’. For Tokyo 2020, five sports —
karate, skateboarding, sports climbing,
surfing and baseball/softball — have
been suggested by the Organising
Committee and, following recent IOC EB
approval, will now be submitted to the
IOC Session in Rio.
Regarding the Sports Data Project,
we welcome that in the future the IOC,
facilitated by the Olympic Channel, will
coordinate the platform on behalf of
the wider Olympic Movement.
This Olympic year of 2016 promises to
remain exciting, with the role of the IFs
becoming more and more relevant during
the implementation of Olympic Agenda
2020. We are ready, looking forward and
equipped to contribute to the progress of
the Olympic Movement at large.

t was a great pleasure for the seven
members of the Association of
International Olympic Winter Sports
Federations (AIOWF) to convene in the
heart of the international sports world
in the Olympic Capital of Lausanne
(SUI).
The AIOWF General Assembly, led
by President Gian Franco Kasper, took

Reports and updates were provided
by each of the future Olympic Winter

and the YOG in Lausanne 2020. The
respective IOC Departments reported
about the implementation of the

and additional initiatives. The World
Anti-Doping Agency was on hand to
present a status report and also address
various matters arising with the AIOWF
members.
In addition, the AIOWF Members
unanimously decided that its President,
Gian Franco Kasper, be proposed as the
organisation’s representative on the
IOC Executive Board. The proposal will

arranged a dedicated session with
the PyeongChang 2018 Organising

faces an important period with 24 test
events in all sports scheduled during
the upcoming pre-Games season.
While several IFs staged successful
test events last season, the bulk of
the 2018 Olympic Winter Games test
events will be held in the upcoming
season and were a major discussion
point.
In addition, the AIOWF members met

A
n intense year of activity was
presented at the ARISF Annual
General Assembly. Amongst
the main achievements, Dr. Raffaele
Chiulli, ARISF President, highlighted
the continuation of the constructive
dialogue with the Interanational
Olympic Committee (IOC). The ARISFIOC Workshop was held again this year
during the SportAccord Convention
and the open discussions and
active participation confirmed that
such a forum highly contributes to
strengthening the relationship between
the ARISF Members and the IOC.
The workshop followed a historic
first IOC-ARISF joint meeting between
the IOC President, four Vice-Presidents
and senior management, and the ARISF
President and the full ARISF Council.
Cooperation in key areas was addressed
and will be further developed through
annual joint meetings.

them to take advantage of the new
opportunities, in particular the Olympic

historic first
IOC-ARISF joint
meeting between the
IOC President, four
Vice-Presidents, the
ARISF President and

regarding ethics, compliance, integrity,
governance and the Integrity Betting
Intelligence System (IBIS). ARISF and
the IOC took the committment to
support the 2016 development projects
for the benefit of ARISF sports and
athletes.
President Raffaele Chiulli
congratulated the five ARISF federations
running for inclusion at the Tokyo 2020
Olympic Games. "The cooperation with
the IOC is getting stronger and stronger,
and the importance of ARISF's role in
the process for the Olympic recognition
of new sport disciplines has been
acknowledged", said President Chiulli.
ARISF intends to keep up the dialogue
with all sport stakeholders and in this
context, the ARISF-WADA Anti-Doping
Coaching/Training Session had its
important time cluster also this year at
the SportAccord Convention to allow
International Federations, WADA, and
any individual or organisation involved
or interested in clean sport to share
expertise, experiences and views in an
open and transparent fashion.
President Chiulli highlighted the
ARISF Strategic Plan: "Our Strategic
Plan which clearly outlines our Mission

Associations" and then he closed the
ARISF General Assembly with a word of
thanks to all Member Federations for
their support and to the ARISF Council

he SportAccord Convention
2016 was one of the most
memorable ones for AIMS and
the 23 affiliated international sporting
federations.
In 2015, AIMS elected a new
President, the General Secretary of the
International Federation of Muaythai
Amateur (IFMA) Stephan Fox, who
promised a total reform of AIMS. The
new President promised much closer
and much needed cooperation between
AIMS, IOC and all SportAccord members.
He made it one of his highest priorities,
especially as many AIMS sports are
striving for individual recognition
by the IOC. After his election, a very
positive meeting took place between
the IOC President, Dr Thomas Bach
and the AIMS President, where positive
discussions were had regarding the
future cooperation of AIMS and IOC, for
the overall benefits of sport.
A three-day conference took place
in Bangkok with representatives from
the IOC, IWGA, FISU, TAFISA and many
others; and one of the many agenda
points were changes in the constitution.
The fundamental principles of
Olympic as stated in the Olympic
Charter by sustaining and developing
sports as well as education of youth
through sport and to establish
credibility in sport, and to continue to
AIMS will
continue to
build on what
has been achieved
in the past and looks
forward to a close
cooperation with
the IOC, and the
SportAccord family
ensure that the practice of sport is a
human right; all of these are key issues.
In November, a joint meeting
between the IOC and AIMS took place
at the IOC headquarters in which the
cooperation between IOC and AIMS
had been discussed so that AIMS
members could have the option to IOC
resources and to discuss time frame
and cooperation for members to receive
individual IOC recognition.
In December the IOC Executive Board
granted provisional recognition to AIMS
subject to some further constitutional
changes. All these changes have been
made and during the SportAccord
Convention, the IOC president, Dr
Thomas Bach and AIMS President
Stephan Fox signed a historical MoU
to the joy of 23 international sports,
making AIMS an IOC-recognised
umbrella group.
Mr Fox thanked the IOC President, Dr
Bach, for his vision and leadership, the
implementation of Agenda 2020. He
thanked the IOC Sport Department for
all their guidance and support and the
23 AIMS members for the spirit of unity
towards important common goals.
AIMS hosts an important conference
during the SportAccord Convention
with many important speakers such as
President of WADA, Sir Craig Reddie;
President of ASOIF, Mr Francesco Ricci
Bitti; SportAccord Chairman, Mr Gian
Franco Kasper; ARISF President, Mr
Raffaelle Chiulli; Peace and Sport and
World Olympians Associations President,
Mr Joël Bouzou; Mr Kit McConnell and
Mrs Jenny Mann from the IOC; and many
more. Many other activities took place,
such as AIMS’ participation in the ARISF
and WADA workshops and the historic
welcome dinner jointly organised by
ARISF, IWGA and AIMS. The AIMS party
was a night of celebration that showed
the credibility of AIMS in the world of
sport with over 300 attendees from the
world sport family.
AIMS will continue to build on what
has been achieved in the past and looks
forward to a close cooperation with the
IOC, and the SportAccord family; and
looks forward to Aarhus in 2017.

OTHER MAJOR EVENTS HOSTED AHEAD
OF THE GAMES: More than 30 international
events over the last 20 years
WHY DID LAUSANNE BID FOR THIS
EVENT? Lausanne and the Canton de Vaud
have been the host of the modern Olympic
Movement for more than a hundred years.
Because of that, sport and the positive values
that it carries has become a part of this
region’s DNA.
Therefore for us, the idea of delivering the
Youth Olympic Games’ vision to inspire the
youth of the world to adopt and live according
to the Olympic values of Respect, Friendship
and Excellence right from the heart of the
Olympic Capital was one that we thought
made a lot of sense.
With 2020, we want to capture this special
Olympic heritage, and with our strong
international sports expertise and capacity to
innovate, redefine it and update it alongside
the youth of the world to provide the next
generation with a brand new and refreshed
ownership of the Olympic values.

aced with the high intensity of
the SportAccord Convention
programme of meetings,
presentations and displays, many
organisers, speakers and delegates
count on good coffee to keep going.
This year the fuel for this 14th edition
of the event is provided by Nespresso,
who are marking some milestones in
their own history by joining the ranks
of the Convention’s Gold Partners.
Nespresso has built a reputation for
excellence during its 30-year history
and its roots go back even further
as part of the 150-year-old Nestlé
empire. Such strong traditions ensure
that confidence in the brand and
the product is high, and the age-old
commitment to customer service and
quality of ingredients is still as fresh as
the coffee.

AARHUS TO HOST
2017 CONVENTION
The importance of listening to youngsters
in the digital age came to the fore during
the MediaAccord Foundation Meeting at
SportAccord Convention World Sport &
Business Summit.
The Meeting, which was led by
Euronews CEO Michael Peters and held
ahead of the launch of MediaAccord at
the 2016 Convention, brought together
members of various strands of the
arhus in Denmark was
unveiled as the host of
SportAccord Convention
2017 last night during an enthralling
opening ceremony for this year’s
event at the SwissTech Convention
Center in Lausanne.
The second largest city in
Denmark will be the European
Capital of Culture next year, giving
stakeholders in international sport
the perfect opportunity to visit the
vibrant and creative city on the
east coast of the Jutland peninsula,
with the Convention scheduled for
April 2-7.
The news was revealed during an
opening ceremony that featured a
stunning performance from students
at the world-famous Rudra-Béjart
school of theatre and ballet in
Lausanne, as well as speeches
from the Convention’s President,
Francesco Ricci Bitti; International
Olympic Committee President
Thomas Bach; Canton of Vaud Head
of Economy and Sport, Philippe
Leuba; and Municipal Councillor of
Sport, Marc Vuilleumier.
“It is a pleasure to bring
SportAccord Convention to Aarhus,
Denmark,” Ricci Bitti, who is also
President of the Association of
Summer Olympic International
Federations (ASOIF), said.
“I am confident that our
collaboration will provide an
excellent platform for Aarhus and
Sport Event Denmark to continue
to support the international
sport community, while meeting
the needs of our stakeholders
and delegates, giving them the
opportunity to embrace and
experience a country that is
passionate about sport.”
Denmark is a natural destination
for sport’s No.1 meeting place,
considering Sport Event Denmark’s
long-term support for the
Convention.
“To be given the opportunity to
invite the world of sport to Aarhus
means a lot to us,” Sport Event
Denmark CEO Lars Lundov told
The Daily.
“Every year, since the very first
SportAccord Convention in 2003,
Sport Event Denmark has been
increasing its participation levels in
the event, from Bronze Partner to
Silver Partner and now Gold Partner
for several years.
“Next year we take the next
step whilst continuing our gold
partnership.”
The Convention will be visiting
a country with a rich tradition of
hosting sporting events, summits,
congresses and conferences, as
outlined by Lundov.
“In 2003 Denmark played host
to the WADA World Congress on
Doping in Sport,” he added.
“Since then Denmark has
staged many more sport summits
and congresses for International
Federations and we always take
the opportunity to demonstrate our
unparalleled passion for hosting
events.
“In 2009 Denmark hosted the IOC
Session and Olympic Congress, and
with the hosting of SportAccord
Convention next year, we hope that
visitors will enjoy a memorable stay
in Denmark and will return home
with an expanded and strengthened
network established through lots of
golden moments.”
The credentials of Aarhus as a host
of sporting events are beyond doubt.
The city has hosted several
major international events,

company’s story started. Housed in
three restored, historic buildings, it will
feature a Nespresso presence and will
also support the status of Nespresso
as not just a coffee – it is a culture, an
impressive history and an authentic
experience that combines perfection,
pleasure, simplicity and aesthetics.
Nespresso has evolved from being the
pioneer and trendsetter into the market
leader in portioned coffee.
Nespresso doesn’t have an exhibition
stand at SportAccord Convention. Nor
does it have speakers, workshops or
forums. Instead Nespresso delivers its
message through the coffee which can
be found in almost every corner of the
Convention.
It also has parallels with the values
of the Convention and the sporting
world through the three pillars of its
programme – Quality, Sustainability,
Productivity – and its links with many
IFs. Like them, Nespresso is based in
Lausanne and is recognised as a world
champion.
The Gold Partner commitment at
SportAccord Convention came from
a desire to support the IFs within the
Nespresso customer base and to help to
fly the flag for the Canton of Vaud.
There are 50 machines around the
SwissTech Convention Center, with
delegates able to try four pods carefully
selected from the Nespresso B2B range
including the international flavours of
India and Guatemala.
The Nespresso AAA programme
works with more than 70,000 farmers
in 12 countries, but only between one
and two per cent of the world’s coffee
crop fulfils the company’s conditions
around taste and aromatic profile, and
the exacting standards of quality and
sustainability.
By maintaining long-term
relationships with the farmers and their
local communities, Nespresso can select
individual crops according to quality
and flavour profile and take coffee
made using the finest beans from the
best coffee-growing areas to the cups of
consumers around the world.
The Nespresso buying team do not
deal in commodity exchanges; they
know exactly what they buy and how
it tastes.
The commitment to quality continues
through the most rigorous attention to
detail in developing smartly designed
and easy-to-use machines which
enhance the aroma and flavour to create
the perfect cup of coffee.
A visit to any of the Nespresso outlets
at SportAccord Convention gives
an idea of the dedication to product
innovation. Since 1986 Nespresso has
created over 100 Grands Crus. Today,
the range of Nespresso Grand Cru
includes 23 Grands Crus B2C and 11
Grands Crus B2B.
Orders are received through a
network of 450 boutiques in 258 cities
in 55 countries, by phone through the
Nespresso customer service team and
via apps for iPhone, iPad and Android,
not forgetting the online service at
www.nespresso.com.
FAI IS HOPING TO SOAR
AFTER MILESTONE EVENT
John Grubbström, President of FAI,
the global governing body of air
sports, is keen to build on the progress
made by the sport during a busy
2015 that reached a crescendo with
the World Air Games in Dubai in
November.
The event comprised competitions
in parachuting, hang gliding, glider
aerobatics, aeromodelling, amateurbuilt and experimental aircraft,
gyrocopters, ballooning, helicopters,
microlights and paramotors.
“Looking back to 2015, it was a
milestone year for FAI,” Grubbström
told The Daily.
“The FAI World Air Games Dubai
2015 was the biggest multi-air sports
event ever organised. More than 900
athletes competed in 11 air sports at
six venues for 12 days. The success
achieved in terms of competitions, as
well as media and public attention,
was fantastic.
“I am really proud of how the
whole FAI community got into
action to collaborate closely with the
Organising Committee. We fulfilled
FAI’s mission to promote air sports
and we can now build on this success
to further develop our activities.”
Attention will now turn to future
editions of the event and capitalising

on the growing popularity of air sports
in key markets.
“We are now focusing on improving
the format of our competitions to
make them more media-friendly and
public-friendly,” Grubbström added.
“We have also opened the bidding
process for the next FAI World Air
Games as we want to make sure that
the future organiser has sufficient
time to prepare the next edition of the
Federation’s flagship competition.
“From small model aircraft to large
hot air balloons, the diversity of our
sports is exceptional. Consequently,
the level of the activities, competitions
and records is high, and to my mind
the challenge is to ensure we have
enough resources and manpower to
manage, cover and develop them at a
top standard.
“There has also been an increase
in FAI’s presence in Asia, where air
sports are growing rapidly.”
Grubbström added that he was
looking forward to exchanging
ideas with other stakeholders in
international sport at SportAccord
Convention this week in Lausanne.
He said: “It is a pleasure for me to
participate in the Convention and to
discuss interesting topics with people
from the whole world of sports.”

pushing for the “same level of

doing vastly better.
“I don’t think the majority of
people in sports governance are
there to steal, but they live in a
bubble and can’t see how bad it has
got and what the implications are
going to be.”
While Fuller has been proved
to be on the right side of history
considering the regime changes
in cycling and football, he has
undoubtedly taken risks in his public
stance against sports. While some
brands might argue that they are
not responsible for the actions of the
rights-holders they associate with
and it is not their job to investigate
corruption, SKINS’ own attitude
perhaps fits in with the bright and
brash clothing they produce for
golf, cycling, triathlon and snow
sports.
Fuller explained that the
company will always ask questions
of its partners, and the fact that it
ended a commercial agreement
with Melbourne Storm after just
three weeks in 2010 when the NRL
side was found to have broken
salary cap rules shows SKINS will
retain its course even if it takes a hit
in the pocket.
“We recognise that our brand
exposes us to charges of hypocrisy,
so we have to be loud – unlike
some competitors – and scream
from the rooftops that we are
taking a position,” Fuller said.
“Other commercial players in
sports are not doing what we do,
despite the fact many have much
greater resources.
“It’s really hard to tell what effect
the campaigns have had on the
business, but they have never been
about selling more products. The
campaigning is not sexy and does
‘I’m perceived as a
rabble-rouser, but
my intention is to be
honest and discuss
positive changes’
little to connect us with consumers,
but it is part of what we are.
“My objective is to try to reflect
a positive and optimistic outlook
for sport to understand what
the future could be if it drags
itself into the 21st century. I want
the heads of the federations to
understand how the rest of the
world expects sport to be, and
that it is answerable to the biggest
stakeholders in sport – us, the fans.
“There is a role for accountability
and embracing that will have a
positive impact on their business
and what they do. That’s what my
goal is.”

to increase the presence of our sport in
every country implementing the system.”
Meanwhile, Ingmar de Vos, President
of Fédération Equestre Internationale
(FEI), said the organisation wants to build
on its strong performance in 2015. He
said: “Television exposure and coverage
across all media and digital platforms
is a key focus for the FEI, and we will be
capitalising on our opportunities into
#SAC2016
2016 and beyond.” Kelly Fairweather, CEO
of the FIH, the global governing body of
hockey, told The Daily that his sport can
now be considered “truly global” after
key signs of growth over the previous 12
months, while Kate Caithness, President
of the World Curling Federation (WCF),
said the winter sport could only benefit
from Japan and the US achieving success
recently.
