“Turning-point for a federation towards the IOC recognition” – Michal Buchel

SportWorks TALKS – #MeetTheFederations series

IOC’s recognition is just the start of an international federation’s holistic journey.

In this SportWorks TAKLS, Michal Buchel, International SAMBO Federation CEO, shares details on SAMBO’s pathway towards successful IOC recognition, granted provisionally in November 2018.

Learn more on how the federation adapted its governance principles and proved to be a universal sport, whilst developing concrete policies to foster gender equality and sustainable practices.

During the talk, Michal shares how the use of social media as evidence for universality, a video clip that illustrates global female participation of this self-defence without weapons martial art and the IF’s alignment of its internal policies with IOC’s Agenda 2020 and UN’s 17 SDG Goals are just some of the interesting examples of the topics covered.

Enjoy this insightful presentation with many learning opportunities.
