The Slovak Ice Hockey Association (SZĽH) will be led by Igor Nemeček for the next four years as the ice hockey executive and coach was elected to the post at the association’s congress in Bratislava on June 10, the TASR newswire reported.
Nemeček was the only candidate. He gained the support of 96 of 108 delegates.
"I believe that we'll manage to improve Slovak hockey," said Nemeček shortly after the results were published, as quoted by TASR.
Nemeček, a long time close colleague of SZĽH president Juraj Široký who is leaving the post after 13 years, has worked as an ice hockey coach in Slovakia and abroad.
