Profound sadness among the MESGO family

It is with profound sadness that the MESGO family yesterday learned about the sudden and unexpected passing away of Olafur Rafnsson, President of FIBA-Europe and of the Icelandic Olympic Committee. Olafur was a MESGO graduate of the programme’s first intake.

Olafur will be deeply missed by both the MESGO family and the basketball and sport communities.

Our thoughts are with Olafur’s family, FIBA-Europe and everybody who had the pleasure of sharing precious moments with him.
