Spain’s Marisol Casado has been re-elected as president of World Triathlon. Her 86 votes doubled Denmark’s Mads Freund tally, who also ran for election.
“I’m delighted to receive this vote of confidence from our members that is an acknowledgment of all the hard work we have been doing to ensure triathlon’s rightful place among the most popular and fastest growing sports in the world,” Casado said.
Casado emphasizes the heartwarming feeling her re-election brings. “This past week has shown that the solidarity and integrity of our organization, our National Federations, our committee and commission members and our athletes continues to define us,” she continued.
”I know that Mads Freund shares my passion for our sport and I promise to take on board the points that his candidacy raised as well as everything that has come out of the discussions with National Federations and Continental Confederations,” she continued. “Working with the new Executive Board, we are ready to make World Triathlon even stronger. “
