It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of Mr. Guy Koller, President of the French Weightlifting Federation. 

Mr. Guy Koller, a special person and a strong supporter of our beloved sport was found dead today in his hotel room in Oran – Algeria, where he was attending together with the official delegation of France in the Mediterranean Games.
