A historic and great sports festival. For the first time in the history of judo sport, official European were held in ID judo. The European Judo Association, the EJU, IFoN and the INAS supported this event. The EJU was chaired by Vice-President Jane Bridge, IFon by its CEO Klaus Gdowczok.

The official organizer of this European Championship, the BJA under the direction of Kerry Tansey, could hardly present better.

One of the key points and factors: there were no injuries during the entire European Championship! Not a single judoka had to be treated at the edge of the mat.

Referees and sports coordination complemented each other in the usual way.

There was an exzellent Divisioning under Leadership of Dr. Wolfgang Janko (7.DAN), Rudi Verhagen and Frank Schuhknecht.

We thank you all very much for hosting this first European Championship on behalf of our daughters and sons. The judo sport for people with intellectual disabilities has taken another step towards Paralympics.

Thank you so much to Kerry and your team

Klaus Gdowczok
