TO ALL WAKO MEMBERS
“My Dear WAKO Friends,
I am writing you after a long time because I got a stroke but I am still alive.
It has been a hard time but I am slowly recovering.
Since I cannot guide WAKO as I would like to do, my wish is now that WAKO can be leaded by the right person with a good team.
I think that this person can be our Vice President Mr. Borislav Pelevic, who is a trusted friend and a respected member of WAKO Board since many years. He has contributed a lot for the development of WAKO and for the benefit of its members. I am sure that he will be able to successfully lead WAKO in the future with his team.
I know that WAKO is facing hard times. There are many competitors that want to create obstacles and take advantage of our situation but WAKO is a strong and big family.
Today we are on the good path to be recognized by the IOC. One day, I am sure, WAKO will be recognized. Please stay united and continue working together in order to reach this important goal.
I trust that the new President may bring WAKO to achieve great results.
This is my farewell. It has been a privilege working with you all.
I enjoyed every moment.
Yours in sport,
