WKF Vice President receives German Olympic Committee's highest honour

WKF Vice President and Commissioner for Para-Karate and Refugees Wolfgang Weigert was honoured by the German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) at the organisation’s General Congress.

The Karate official received the “Golden Honour pin” for his career in sport management and his contribution to inclusion through sport.

This recognition is the DOSB’s highest distinction and is limited to five individuals per year. WKF Vice President since 2018 and EKF Vice President since 2021, Mr Weigert is the first Karate official to receive this award.

WKF President Antonio Espinós said:

“On behalf of the Karate family, I want to congratulate Mr Weigert for this outstanding achievement. Mr Weigert has contributed greatly to the progress of our sport not only in Germany but all over the world for over two decades, and he continuously demonstrates the many added values that Karate brings to the sports eco-system worldwide.”
