FORMER national athlete Joe Rodan senior is back in athletics and this time as the president of Athletics Fiji.

The former national 400m champion was elected president during the Athletics Fiji annual general meeting at the Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) boardroom yesterday.

Vuli Waqa is the new vice-president and Salote Waqanivalu is the new secretary.

Usa Tunaulu is the treasurer Paul Yee is the chief technical official, Makelesi Buli is the athletics rep while Joe Rodan Jr is the chief development officer.

However, an official from the International Association of Athletics Federation, who attended the meeting, would take the names of the new officials and present it to the IAAF board for confirmation.

Rodan senior said he was looking forward to the challenge.

"All I have to do is continue the good work the previous official did," he said.

"The previous committees did a good job and I want to carry that on."

He added the new committee was also working on a new constitution that would be released in October.

Rodan senior also asked the stakeholders of the sport, the athletes, coaches and supporters to keep supporting athletics.

"We need to move on despite the setbacks we have faced and continue moving forward so that the sport and the athletes benefit and progress.

"We are working on putting athletics back on top and I would need the help of everyone involved in the sport."
