The WOC in the Future project has been discussed in the IOF Council meeting today. The project has come a long way since the online survey in 2009 and the General Assembly in Trondheim in 2010. All national federations have had several chances to give feedback to the IOF in different stages of the project, most recently in January 2012.
The IOF now received feedback from 19 national federations. As the opinions of the federations varied a great deal and had changed significantly since last hearings, the Council concluded that even though there is consensus on the need of evolution and development, the federations’ views on how to change the programme were too diverse.
Therefore, the Council will not propose changes to the current World Championships programme at the upcoming General Assembly in Lausanne. “There is a significant difference of opinion between our bigger and smaller member federations. At this point of time it is more important not to split the IOF family than to make the changes that received support in Trondheim in 2010”, IOF President Åke Jacobson said, and continued: “That is why we have decided to continue with the current programme.”
