Madrid 2020 At IOC World Conference

A high-level delegation attended the XV World Conference on Sport for All in Lima Peru. which included bid President Alejandro Blanco, and International Relations CEO Theresa Zabell.

Blanco said, “sport and healthy lifestyle habits can change the direction society takes. The Sport for All conference is the best way of showing the world all the advances that are being made in this area”.

Zabell said, “we at Madrid 2020 believe that the teaching of sporting values and a love for sport should be taught as soon as children start school. Together with the Ministry of Education we have drawn up a program designed to promote Olympic and sporting values in the Spanish educational system, and we hope to leave Lima with many other ideas so that we can continue to work on our bid project which has always been centred around our youth with the aim of improving their quality of life”.
