Kigali, Rwanda, December 6, 2013- CAVB President Dr Amr Elwani honoured FIVB Executive vice President and NORCECA Confederation President Cristobal Marte Hoffiz with the Silver order of CAVB after his great work to support Africa during the operations of the CAVB Congress held at Serena in Kigali, Rwanda on Saturday.
Marte expressed his gratitude to receive the order and to be honoured with this prize in a big event like the CAVB Congress.
"We have similar financial and technical conditions in NORCECA like Africa and thus I fought together with Dr Elwani for a long time to take the support we deserve from the FIVB and finally we succeeded to show our ability in Graca's era as FIVB President. I want to thank Dr Elwani and his team for this confidence and I hope they work hard for more progress,"
"What happened here in 1 year is a big success and I can see that Africa is going now towards the world level with the support of FIVB and its president. I can expect one day that an African team will be the best in the world. If we need one day to be more famous than soccer, we need to work together and support each other for that target."
