The IKF has been informed that Mr Johan Wiegerink has passed away 1 November 2012. Despite the fact he was ill his death came as a schock. He was 67 years of age. Johan Wiegerink was the committed chair of the Local Organising Committee of IKF Europe Korfball Championship in the Netherlands in 2010. The event became a success due to his professional attitude, his indepth knowledge of the korfball community and his ability to mobilise proefessionals and volunteers.
The IKF President, Dr Jan Fransoo, presented him the Pin of Merit on 31 October 2010 in the closing dinner of that very successful event. Johan Wiegerink was awarded member in the Order of Orange Nassau by the Dutch Queen.

We wish his wife, children, grandchildren and other members of the family strength in the period that is ahead of them. The korfball world will remember him with greatest respect.
