For Russian Olympic Committee President Stanislav Pozdnyakov, 50 years of the EOC is a great milestone for a young organisation full of ideas and projects as part of a vibrant and unique continental history.

The European Games and the European Youth Olympic Festivals are bright examples of this. Highlights in the history of the ROC include hosting the EOC General Assembly in Sochi in 2011, Russia topping the medals table at the 2015 & 2019 European Games and Alexandra Trusova winning the Piotr Nurowski Prize.
