Mr. Ivan Tsanov, M.Sc.Phy., (or Canov, re. the Cyrillic letter)
is one of the well known Bulgarian all over the globe. Get on every Internet
browser, and type his name, last name, or only part of his name and youíll
see it for yourself. The first info in a set of the top 10 infos (at the
google, yahoo, astavista, hotboot, etc.) contributes to this great man.
Whatís more, a swimming is a theme that is connected or added to his name.
If you would like to search more, youíll find out one widely visited web
site at www.bulswim.info which
contributes to the development of the swimming sport, its popularization,
full of the serious historian review analysis, statistics, exclusive interviews,
media articles and before all of that, the promotions of the new swim talents
and their achievements, all far away of any political, clerical, spiritual,
business and other interests. The site is composed predominantly in the
Bulgarian language (Bulgarian cyrillic alphabet) as well as in English
in short segments. The topics do not deal only with the actualities from
the authorís native land, but also the Balkans, Western Balkan (as its
popular in the moment) and South Eastern Europe. That is enough to be respected
from any aspects.
So, today, on June 08, 2007, we all have to send our congratulations and
regards to Mr.Ivan Tsanov for the worth celebration - the 5th anniversary
of establishing the First Bulgarian Swim Site (FBSS). More over, the
best wishes and the appeal to go ahead in his struggle for the Balkan and
global swimming interests.
But, let me start from the beginning! I had a privilege to know Mr.Tsanov
for six years, while weíve met only once in person, in the course of 2001.
Since that, after heís been officially presented to the chives of the Serbian
swimming association at the State championships in the city of Nis, weíve
exchanged just thinking in general, but I understood that one sincere swim
giant and open up person stays in front of me, who could do a lot in the
poor swimming regarding the situations not only in Bulgaria and Yugoslavia
(in that time), but also Europe. So, the Swim Star 2000 Agency involved
this man, powered his previous and the present web site and established
one great swim and human cooperation.
Mr. Ivan Tsanov (1963) is the professor of psychology and philosophy,
post-graduated at the respectable Sofiaís University St.Clement Ohridski......
ex Balkan Junior swim champion, ranked 5th at the Euro Junior in 1978,
the winner of many domestic and international events in age categories.
Today, he is well respected participant of the Bulgarian Masters swimming
events and a part of the national selection.
Few days ago, Iíve asked the webmaster of our Swim Star Web Portal to investigate
more then 200 MB data of the FBSS from many aspects. Would you like to
see the final report? All explanations can be put into one word FANTASTIC.
Very few web media in the world today have created something similar. Watch
out at the swimming names among the interviews, critical articles on the
swimming in Bulgaria, Serbia, BiH, Romania, Slovenia, Croatia, Turkey,
FYROM, Albania, Cyprus and other countries. Want to meet great Bulgarian
swim coaches dislocated world wide today, get on the FBSS. Who doesn't
know something about the Bulgarian legends Lazov, Zamorata, Bogomilova,
Mihaylov, etc., then about FINA open water champion Peter Stoychev, Mike
Alexadrov, Gueorgi Palazov, Moralieva, etc., as well as the new kids: Kolichev,
Nikolov, Tzvetanov, Zhelev, Zlatkova, Grahovsky, etc. FBSS is the only
non-governmental web media in the world that has been asked from the National
swimming federation for the promotion space and presentation. And thatís
not all. Mr. Ivan Tsanov helped the Serbian swim people many times for
this last 5 years.
Personal message - Dear honored Ivan (as I used to call him just like that),
the both of us are on the road to nowhere, I know. However, some new winds
in the swimming sport in our wider region will respect all our efforts
inlayed so far, and this worthy sport will be put to the place it really
deserves. You, me and all our mates worldwide do that just because of the
Swimming. God bless you Man!!
