Hi, I hope you’re all doing well. Under whatever restrictions and conditions that your nation is in, I hope you’re stilldoing well and keeping as safe as possible.We are looking forward to meeting again to armwrestle at great big championships. You know clubs, you know nations,and internationallyas well.There’s been a lot of discussionabout the Olympicsthrougout the years,and nowthat justbreakdancingis nowbeing let into the Olympic Games, again armwrestling wants to be—and of course we want to be—we want to be in everywhere because armwrestling is what we love doing.We want to be very clear about the fact that IFA is about making armwrestling happenhere, now, in the future, everywhere and however it can. In that way, the Olympics in the future might be a means to that end but it’s not the goal. The goal is to get as many people as possible to armwrestle and enjoy armwrestlingin the best possible way. Is Olympics part of that in the future? It could be, but it’s not the only thing. It’s not the only way we have to further develop our sport. And above all, it’s not where the sport is now. So our focus is: where the sport is now; that is: where you are now, where your club is now, where your nation is now, where the world championships are now. IFA is about armwrestling ongrass rootlevel, onelitelevel, on every level possibleright now and in the future. We’re not going to say that developmentis connected to something that could happen in 8 or 12 years time. It may, and we’ll be thankful if it does. It may not, and that won’t stop us from armwrestling in every waywe can, anywhere we can and at any timewe can. That is what IFA is about.
