The 25th Anniversary of IPC and Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympic Games
Sir Philip Craven
President of International Paralympic Committee (IPC)
Yasushi Yamawaki
Governing Board member of IPC
Language: The speech and Q & A will be in English.

 The Paralympic Movement is gaining global recognition not simply as a sidekick but as a full-scale campaign to ''enable Paralympic athletes to achieve sporting excellence and to inspire and excite the world,'' as the IPC's vision puts it.

 As Tokyo is gearing up for the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, members of the organizing committees are keeping themselves busy to ensure their success six years from now.

 Sir Philip Craven, president of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), and Yasushi Yamawaki, president of the Japanese Paralympic Committee (JPC), will come to the Club to keep our members abreast of fresh developments in the Paralympic Movement and ongoing preparations for Tokyo 2020.

 Sir Philip, of Britain, was a five-time Paralympian in wheelchair basketball, winning the Gold Cup in the World Championship in 1973. As a board member of the London 2012 Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games, he helped pull off the highly successful Olympiad in the British capital. He has been a member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) since 2003 and IPC president since 2001.

 Yamawaki is a onetime executive vice chairman of NYK Lines and serves as deputy chairman of the Committee on Oceanic Resources at the powerful business body Keidanren (the Japan Federation of Economic Organizations). A governing board member of the IPC since 2013, he now heads the JPC and concurrently serve as vice president of the Tokyo Organizing Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

 Please reserve in advance, 3211-3161 or on the website (still & TV cameras inclusive). Reservations and cancellations are not complete without confirmation.
