Greetings from MRS KhunyingPatama Leeswadtrakul

Khunying Patama Leeswadtrakul

I wish to express my sincere congratulations to the International Association of Olympic Collectors (AICO) on the successful organization of the AICO Web Olympic Show 2021 (AIWOS 2021), the first Virtual International Exhibition of Olympic Collections, which will be displayed on digital platform from 23rd July to 2nd October 2021.

The Olympic Games is a unique event that subtly combines sports, culture and education into one entity.  This convergence delivers messages of global solidarity, resilience and hope.  The Games brings together people of different races, cultures, languages and nationalities and unite them into one to make a collage of harmony in diversity.  Each edition of the Olympic Games has its own distinctive stories which can be narrated through various forms of texts, photos, videos, arts and collections.

I am certain that visitors to the AIWOS 2021 will enjoy captivating history of the Olympic Games and will be fascinated by the impressive collections that will take them through the tunnel of time and intriguing tales.  I hope they will also gain wider knowledge and deeper understanding of the Olympic Games which go beyond sports to represent the ideals of humankind.

I wish AICO successful organization of AIWOS 2021, one of the world’s finest virtual international exhibitions.  This online event is worthy to be remembered and cherished for always.
