Re-elected for third term: Remarks of FIS President to 45th FIS Congress

June 7th, 2006 - Gian Franco Kasper was re-elected as FIS President with enthusiastic applause of the 45th International Ski Congress. Accepting his election, he began his third four-year term by promising to do his best for the federation, while adding that it will be up to others to judge whether that is enough.

In his opening speech to the Vilamoura Congress, Gian Franco Kasper commented on the two-year period since the 2004 Congress in Miami (USA). He observed that the 2004/05 and 2005/6 seasons have been “quite successful for FIS and for the sport of skiing,” including carrying out an outstanding total of approximately 10’800 international skiing competitions, let alone several superb FIS World Championships and the magnificent Olympic Winter Games in Turin. However, he also noted that “quantity does not automatically mean quality” and that FIS will be challenged to “rectify certain shortcomings in the organization during the next competition seasons.”

President Gian Franco Kasper also underlined that “the philosophy of FIS has never been and shall never be to work for the financial benefit of the organizers at very few National Ski Associations, but for the benefit of all National Ski Associations world-wide and the development of our sport as such.” He stressed that it is his very personal philosophy to “generate income for the sport, but not from the sport” and asked the international ski family to continue to work together for “realistic solutions especially concerning finances and division of income” so as to ensure the promotion of skiing world-wide also in the future.
