All of us here at the IAAF would like to send you our very best wishes at this festive time of the year.
2003 has been a tremendous, exciting and dramatic year for our sport, and we are all excited about 2004, and will be working hard to promote Athletics as the Number 1 Sport at the Olympic Games in Athens.
Although the IAAF offices will be closed from 24 December until 5 January, we will continue to update the IAAF website throughout this period.
In these troubled times, the IAAF, with 211 Member Federations from all over the world, demonstrates how Athletics can promote peaceful and friendly international relations.
We wish you all Good Health and Good Fortune over the holidays, and the year to come.
