Full agenda for FIM Europe President in Rome on 18th September: Dr. Wolfgang Srb started his day with his official settlement in his Italian office, where his staff and Secretary General work. During the day, Dr. Srb had two important meetings, with President of the European Weightlifting Federation Mr. Antonio Urso and Prof. Fabio Pigozzi, President of the International Sports Medicine Federation and Rector of the State University of Rome “Foro Italico”.
The cooperation between FIM Europe and the European Weightlifting Federation had already started last February, with a Workshop on Weight Training for motorcycling riders, reserved to FIME FMNs Trainers, in the Austrian city of Graz. The two disciplines, in fact, have several points in common, and they reveal complementary in training, since weightlifting allows riders to increase their strength without augmenting muscular mass, and therefore weight.
The meeting with Prof. Pigozzi was meant to continue the strong partnership started in 2011 and 2012 with two Sports Medicine Courses for Event Physicians held respectively in Imola and San Marino. Motorcycling and Sports Medicine should share experiences at all levels in future.
The two meetings are part of FIM Europe project to maintain and establish new relationships with other Federations at European and World level.
“It is of utmost importance for FIM Europe and the affiliated National Federations that we have contacts beyond our ‘typical’ motorcycle activities, with other International Sports Federations as well as with University Professors, Science and Research”, Dr. Srb said. “This will be for the benefit for all of us. I consider these activities as a permanent task”.
