History

Horst Volkmer and Walter Mallmann, fathers of the IVV Olympiad.

At the IVV Congress of Delegates in Oberhambach (Germany) from 12 – 15 May 1988 led by Horst Volkmer (at that time IVV and DVV President), the foundation for the IVV Olympiad was laid. Actually, the IVV Olympiad should take place every year in another country. The first one was planned for 1990 to take place in Innsbruck (Austria). After several discussions during that year it was decided in the autumn of 1988 to organize the IVV Olympiad every second year in another IVV member country. The first Olympiad took place in Valkenburg (The Netherlands).
