Storm around the MOB

I am in a hurry to point out at the outset that I am a biased printer for the Hungarian Olympic Committee, as the proud holder of two Media Awards, because I have always been of the opinion that, according to a well-established Italian system, he should be a major player in the management of elite sports at home. That is why I have kept a close eye on everything that has shaken the moods of many in recent days: a new statute came into force on 1 September, and only those who, according to their temperament, were confronted, on the contrary, resigning to the unchangeable, overcoming personal ambitions, perhaps even a little easier, they noted the drastic reduction in membership, which also affected them. Yes, it is an undeniable fact: there is not a single organization in the world that is able to get rid of nearly 50 percent of its previous membership, even to my modest estimate, without echo. It would be long to list who or what (what, by the way, absolutely close-to-the-sport, illustrious organizations, associations) have fallen victim to monster slimming. I would like to take some of the many, such as the Olympic champions Ferenc Török, László Fábián, György Nébald, Ágnes Kovács and Barnabás Steinmetz, sports doctors and sports journalists, five-ring gold medalists , it is very difficult, if not impossible, to argue for the earthquake – like transformation in a way that is acceptable to everyone, because … EMMI’s secretariat of state) has absorbed almost everything, in principle and practically everything, especially, of course, the huge amount of money (and, of course, the distribution of many, many billions) that the state spends, so to speak, countlessly and almost completely out of control on sports. In support of my findings, which touch on the surface only in small detail, I would like to cite two statements who, as things stand, are likely to say goodbye to their MOB membership, here is Dénes Kemény, the federal captain of the three-time Olympic water polo team, Vice-president of the Hungarian Association of Coaches: “The operation of the MOB is decided at almost all levels of the board; the size of the general meeting has the greatest impact on catering.” István Vaskuti, Olympic champion canoe: “I hope that this reform is the first step towards giving the MOB real executive powers in Hungarian sports, in the daily life of the Olympic sports, and not just as a travel agency for the five-ring games.” Both the outspoken rating and the outlook for the future are a clear indication of what MOB is today.
