AIMS & UTS Thank ASOIF President Francesco Ricci Bitti
Francesco Ricci Bitti needs no introduction in the world of sport. A successful athlete, the former President of the International Tennis Federation, the former President of GAISF and Sportaccord as well as the current President of the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations.
Mr. Ricci Bitti, is also on the Executive Committee of Sportaccord and he has been a strong supporter of AIMS and United Through Sports since the inauguration. Mr. Ricci Bitti has spoken at every conference and has been valuable towards the development of the initiative. We all remember fondly his active role in Bangkok at the first festival and once again on the Gold Coast where he was on stage with His Royal Highness Prince Feisal Al Hussein,Ban Ki-Moon,Anita DeFrantz, Honourable Minister Kate Jones, Mayor Thomas Tate, Raffaele Chiulli and Stephan Fox playing in the band with the Australian youth.
On behalf of AIMS, the social initiative United Through Sports and the legacy it leaves behind for youth of all abilities and socio-economic statuses we would like to say thank you, to a true leader and visionary in the world of sports.
