President of ARISF Jan Fransoo has lead presentation of the international association which it heads, and has designated its role and a place in Olympic movement. Special attention Jan Fransoo has turned to that the main organization in the world on development of sports was and is still stays an International Olympic Committee and has named recognized IOC sports - Next Olympic generation. After recognition of IOC, sports can be included in the program of Olympic Games.

Disproportionate development of mountaineering and climbing has led to that on General assembly UIAA in Canada during the last week the decision on creation of the International Federation of Climbing was accepted and now there is a question on preservation of the status of recognition IOC.

These are unique Games of recognized by IOC sports, that don’t have analogues in the world which will allow estimating development of these kinds of sports in Russia and in the world. Games will promote formation leading positions of Russia and adjustment of the international communications. The concept of games assumes match meetings in individual and game sports of the strongest Russian sportsmen with the best foreign sportsmen and commands of a world rating. Carrying out of the given action will serve as powerful stimulus for development and the propagation of recognized by IOC sport in Russia among youth, by means of demonstration of sport which are new in Russia, but are developed all over the world and are candidates on inclusion in the program of Olympic Games.

- I am pleasantly surprised, that Russia understands me in literal sense, and here everyone speak English. It strongly changes perception of Russia which is one of the most developed countries in sports. And that now you have broken a language barrier - will promote substantially to expansion of your representation in the international sports organizations. And changes in structure of a management of sports of Russia deduce on qualitatively higher level of an opportunity in promotion of your national sport. I am impressed by presentations of bandy and sambo-wrestling to President IOC Jacque Rogge, and also the confident protection of interests FIAS (sambo-wrestling) in opposition with FILA on the International Convention "Sportaccord" in Seoul (South Korea). I think, you will succeed, because besides development of sport the dialogue with the world community is very important.
