Death of Prof. Borislav Pelevic, WAKO President

preminuo Borislav Pelevic KBSS WAKO WAKOEU


Dear Members, Dear Friends, Dear WAKO Family.


It is with great sadness and pain, I inform you that in the early hours today Thursday 25th October our president Prof. Borislav Pelevic, died, suddenly at home, in Belgrade Serbia. Firstly and most importantly my thoughts and prayers are with his family as are yours.

A true leader in our sport, he was born on 22nd November 1956, a professor of Sport Administration and an active professor in Belgrade University. He was former president of the nationalist Party of Serbian Unity and a member of the Serbian Parliament.

The President as most of us know, had triple bypass surgery in April and was recovering well, but on significant medication and his health was growing. Yet less than three weeks after that he was at the SportAccord Convention in Bangkok, his commitment to the ongoing development in our sport was inspirational. He ALWAYS put the sport first.

He was founder and president of the Serbian Kickboxing federation and brought the sport to this country. He was a WAKO IF board member and elected to the presidency of WAKO in 2015.

I, We on the board and you our members, have lost a very close and dear friend, somebody that had a passion and drive for life. He will be missed. Funeral arrangements will be
forwarded at a later date.


Respectfully Yours,
Roy Baker
WAKO VP
WAKO EUROPE President
