Message from the IJF President

Dear national federations, dear friends,

In June 2023 I was delighted to see the IJF collaboration with Tajikistan benefiting the judo family, as the World Judo Tour arrived in Dushanbe for the first time. The event turned out to be extraordinary, finding its way into the hearts of the Tajik people immediately and bringing a full house of spectators and incredible media coverage.

Due to this success and to the continued hard work by all members of the Tajikistan Judo Federation, led by their President, Mr Ismoil Mahmadzoir, the Dushanbe Grand Prix has now been granted grand slam status and so Tajikistan joins the 2024 calendar at yet another new level.

We are always proud to see new countries reaching for excellence, bringing new judoka and cultures into the spotlight. Tajikistan is a friend to the arts and to sport and this perfect combination is the best starting point from which to continue the excellent development work being done in the regions and nationally.

The country’s capital is now set to welcome visitors from scores of countries as part of their judoka’s essential pre-Olympic preparation. Stunning scenery, ideal competition conditions and warm hospitality await everyone in Dushanbe.

We wish all participating athletes, visiting delegations and the wider judo family a healthy and successful tournament, filled with team spirit and an always exemplary show of respect and friendship.

Welcome to the Dushanbe Grand Slam!

Yours in judo,
Marius L. VIZER
President International Judo Federation
