To the Presidents and General Secretaries ​of ​European National Weightlifting Federations

​Dear ​EWF Family,


I take this opportunity to express my deeep thanks for having, once again, giving me your trust for the next four Olympic as Presidento of EWF.


This experience lasted eight years already, has really given me a lot of emotions, but in particular, has given me the opportunity to know and appreciate your work and the excellent contribution that each of you daily, give to our sport.


From this experience also, I learned about, your culture, your traditions and today I am certain to have a detailed idea of ​​what it means to Europe.


This re-election requires me to give more answers in terms of projects and quality to all of you. There are already some important projects that will see their early implementation. It will still be a pleasure to show that often the most important innovations in our sport come precisely by the EWF.


It will still be four years of hard work, building, but also of great satisfaction.


To all of you together with the new elected Executive Board I wish the most brilliant results at the next Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and of course, in your life.


Sincerely Yours,


Antonio Urso
