When it comes to sports in Uganda, certainly the Blick family cannot miss. His late father was a diversified sportsman. A boxer, footballer, motorbike rider, rally driver and golfer. William too played Rugby, football, and also engaged in motor-cross and rallying.  This explains his reelection as the president of UOC. William Blick is also the current president of Association of National Olympic Committees of Africa (Anoca) Zone V which contains Eritrea, Sudan & South Sudan, Burundi, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.

Congratulations Mr. Blick!
