Szyman Leaves IWBF
Dr. Robert Szyman, International Wheelchair Basketball Federation (IWBF) secretary general since January 1999, has returned to teaching special education and physical education, at the Chicago High School of Agricultural Sciences. As the organization?s first full-time secretary general, Szyman worked with the executive council to develop a strong presence in the world of sport. His main strength was his love of wheelchair basketball and his devotion to its players and coaches. He retained a close link to them at all levels, from grass roots to world championships.
