Being the Honorary President of the IJF, an Emeritus and recognized judoka, and having the stature of the Head of State of a preeminent country, Vladimir Putin is the perfect ambassador for our sport.
"It is a great honor for our international federation, as well as for the entire judo community, to count among us a very high personality of his reputation and standing," said Marius L. Vizer, the IJF President, before adding: "President Putin represents a high expression of the Judo Values in the world."
