Lausanne – Switzerland, August 17, 2012: Pong, The ITTF has applied to the Peace and Sport Organization to be considered for the “Sport Event of the Year”.
There are many worthy sports event in the world, but I am proud that we have an event that we can present as a nomination from our sport. This would not be possible without the full support of the Qatar TTA, Qatar Olympic Committee and of course the full support of Peace and Sport and its president Jol Bouzou. It does not matter if our nomination wins or not, the important factor is to realize that our sport has a role to play, no matter how small, in promoting peace and understanding through sport. Adham Sharara, ITTF President. ITTF
