The European Commission, as well as the world of sport was saddened by the news of the unexpected passing away of Olafur Rafnsson, aged 50. Mr Rafnsson was President of FIBA Europe and of the National Olympic and Sports Association of Iceland. He will be fondly remembered by all his colleagues in the world of sport. Mr. Rafnsson was a panellist at our last EU Sport Forum 2012 in Nicosia, participating in the debate on "developing principles of good governance in sport". Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr Rafnsson's family and those close to him.
