Floorball Added to IOC’s Recognised Federations

April 11, 2011

The executive board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) concluded its meeting in London by announcing that the International Floorball Federation (IFF) has been added to the group of international sports federations the body recognises.

The board also decided to nominate three people for IOC membership: José Perurena Lopez (Spain), sickness whose candidature is linked to his function within the International Canoe Federation (ICF); Gerardo Werthen (Argentina), whose candidature is as an individual member; and Barbara Kendall (New Zealand), whose candidature is as an active athlete.

The IOC Session will vote on the prospective new members in Durban later this year.
