As president of the Icelandic Paralympic Committee Iĺm very proud of
the very successful IPC European Swimming Championships that took place here in
Reykjavik in the past days. Having all the new World and European records, shows
that everything has been in place to make the games as good as they became; the
athletes, the pool, the staff and volunteers.
I want to thank everyone that participated in the 2009 IPC European Swimming
Championships for their contribution in making the games unforgettable.
Especially, I would like to use this opportunity to express my thanks to the
Meet Manager G˙staf Adolf Hjaltason and his staff, the referees and all the
volunteers that made this possible.
I would also like to thank IPC for their contribution to the games.
And last but not least, I want to thank the staff and board members of the
Icelandic Paralympic Committee, their commitment to the games passed all
I trust and hope that you all brought home with you, good and happy memories
from this big event.
