THE 56TH ICHPER•SD
ANNIVERSARY WORLD CONGRESS & EXPOSITION

December 18th-20th 2014

TOWARDS BUILDING A NEW SPORT SYSTEM

It’s our great pleasure that the Bahrain Olympic Committee is hosting the 56th edition of the ICHPER•SD Anniversary World Congress & Exposition, in cooperation with the International Council  for  Health,  Physical  Education, Recreation,  Sport  and  Dance.

This international gathering is of a significant importance for us, as it embodies the strong relationship between science and sport, which made us choose the slogan “Towards Building a New Sport System”.

Our theme was carefully picked up in order to link the Kingdom of Bahrain with this new sport  system.

At the Bahrain Olympic, we work in accordance to the guidance of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports Chairman and the Bahrain Olympic Committee President Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, aimed at continuing the development process and keeping up with the latest in human sciences.

We also found in our fruitful partnership with the International Council for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, Sport and Dance an incentive to embrace this congress, which we look at with hope and confidence to bring positive results due to its themes and topics that will be discussed.

The congress will also bring together a number of significant scientific discussions, which aim at the objectives for which this event was found for, and embodies the slogan that serves sport globally.

I would like to welcome all the participants in this first-of-kind event organized in the Kingdom of Bahrain, wishing them all the best of luck, and hoping to see the successful culmination of those efforts.
