Istanbul has been the host for the 52nd General Assembly of the European Olympic Committees (EOC) over the past two days, which was attended by over 200 delegates from 48 European countries. EOC President, Spyros Capralos, in his opening speech highlighted the dynamic year the EOC had in 2023 and thanked the European national committees for their dedication to the European Olympic family and competitions from the EOC calendar. “The European Olympic Committees have never been as occupied as this year. Yet, we've orchestrated incredibly triumphant events that have uplifted European sports standards, showcasing premier European athletes in exceptionally organized tournaments". At the Assembly, several key reports from the past year were presented. This included a report from the General Secretary, Raffaele Pagnozzi, a financial report by EOC Treasurer, Dr Peter Mennel, and a report on the EOC's Strategic Agenda 2030 given by Đorđe Višacki. Reports were also presented on this year's European Youth Olympic Festivals, which were held in Italy and Slovenia, the European Games held in Poland, and the Games of the Small States of Europe, which took place in Malta. The delegates unanimously adopted all the reports, as well as amendments to the EOC's statutes. The Piotr Nurowski prizes were also awarded, and this year's winners are Darya Varfolomeev from Germany and Kuzey Tunçeli from Turkey. The second day of the Assembly began with an opening address by Dr. Thomas Bach, the President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and continued with panel discussions on the future of multi-sport competitions organized under the patronage of the EOC.
