“It was an honour to work under your leadership with an excellent team to organise such a unique event. Together, we have conquered all obstacles in less than four months, and organised one of the best aquatics events in FINA’s history.”
The sports executive also expressed his gratitude for the talks he conducted with Mr Orbán about the future of aquatic sports in Hungary.
“FINA and Hungary have a marvellous tradition of cooperation, and I am happy to see that you support our work together in the future; we appreciate your commitment to and trust in FINA,” Mr Al-Musallam wrote.
Concluding his letter, he wrote that it had been a joy to share the world championships with the people of Hungary and thousands of viewers worldwide.
