Tamas Toth (HUN) will return for a second term as the Chair of the World Triathlon Athlete’s Committee, while Allisa Seely (USA) was elected as the Vice Chair by the other members of the committee. Both will now sit on the World Triathlon Executive Board.
Since 2019 World Triathlon has had two athlete representatives at the Executive Board – the constitution states that it has to be one male and one female from two different continents.
“I’m honoured to represent the athletes’ voice for the second term”, said Toth. “The past two years (of our tenure at the Athletes Committee) were mainly about restarting racing and being able to hold the Olympic Qualifications as fair and safe for all as possible. Now it’s time to fine-tune some of the measures we have been discussing for long time and finish the postponed projects and work towards our future goals, positioning Athletes in the heart of the organization. It was really good to see the shining and motivated eyes of our new (and old) committee members, I’m looking forward to working with all of them.”
Seely is the first Para athlete to sit on the Board.
