Alexey Vlasenko, a member of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly, was re-elected as President of the Russian Water Polo Federation. Previously, he also won elections for the President of the Russian Diving Federation and the President of the Russian Synchronized Swimming Federation.
In early November, Vlasenko was re-elected as the only representative of Russia in the Bureau of the European Swimming League (LEN), TASS reports.
At the reporting and election conference, the Head of the Board of Trustees of the Russian Water Polo Federation (FVPR) and Secretary General of the Eurasian Peoples' Assembly Andrei Belyaninov noted:
- Today we can say with confidence that the leadership of the Water Polo Federation is successfully coping with the main task of the Federation - uniting the efforts of all interested organizations in the development of water polo throughout the Russian Federation, training highly qualified athletes and a reserve, ensuring measures for their successful performance at international competitions, development of material and technical base, popularization of water polo in the country.
At the suggestion of Alexei Viktorovich, I agreed to head the Board of Trustees of the Federation. It consists of respected people who, with their knowledge, experience and authority, will help to further promote water polo in Russia and conquer new heights in the world.
It is thanks to you, dear Alexey Viktorovich, and your team, and to numerous devotees that water polo is becoming more popular. Our common task is to expand and multiply this.
Currently, the work on establishment of the Eurasian leagues of team sports is underway. We received support from the Eurasian Economic Commission. I think the Eurasian Continental Water Polo League will be established in the near future.
