ECM statement on European Athletics President & EC2022 Chair Svein Arne Hansen

European Championships Management is saddened by the news from European Athletics about their President Svein Arne Hansen, who has been hospitalized in Norway after suffering a stroke.

ECM Co-Managing Directors Paul Bristow and Marc Joerg, as well as Directors Nicolas Duchoud, Colin Hartley and James Mulligan, wish President Hansen a full and speedy recovery, and our thoughts are with his family at this time.

President Hansen is the Chair of the EC2022 Board, consisting of the participating European Federations, Host City Munich, ECM and the European Broadcasting Union, that governs the organisation of the multisport European Championships that will take place in Munich in August 2022.

ECM pledges to support European Athletics in any way in relation to President Hansen’s duties as EC2022 Chair.
