LEN has learnt with immense sadness that Hans-Peter Sick, long time contributor to European Aquatics, has passed away.

Hans-Peter, for many in the LEN Family just “HP”, was one of those professionals whose great skills and experience greatly contributed to the success story of LEN for long years.

A native of Germany, Hans-Peter was a hard-working member of the LEN Media Team and took the lion-share in providing quality on-site service for the attending media as well as supervising the press operations. He was also a key member of the LEN Masters Committee, acting as Secretary in the past four years, and played a major role in preparing and running the LEN Masters Europeans in all disciplines.

His great personality and knowledge will already be badly missed at the short-course European Championships, the first major LEN Event without him in more than two decades.

In these painful moments, LEN offers its condolences and deepest sympathy to Hans-Peter’s family and friends.
