"I am fully aware of the burden placed upon my shoulder with my election to the presidency of the Cyprus Olympic Committee," said Ouranios Ioannides at the conclusion of the Assembly. "I would like to thank all those who honoured me with their vote, but also those who made a different choice. I also wish to express my respect to the outgoing president, Kikis Lazarides. With our motto, 'Moving Forward', we embark on a new effort, with the athlete at the forefront. Ample light will be shed on all our decisions and actions in our aim to further promote Sport and Olympism."
