Athens 2004) had the full support of the House, received 23 votes and was elected from the very first round.

This is the first time that a Greek participates in an administrative structure of the Executive Board of IBSA, with Ms. Karyofylli occupying one of the five total positions of members. 33 countries participated in the General Assembly, while there were a total of 15 candidates for the position of members.

During the General Assembly, the next day of the judo blind was discussed at length as a revision of the sport's classification code is underway in order to create a fairer system of competitions.
