THE International Association of Athletics Federation has approved the new committee members to head Athletics Fiji.

New office bearers were elected during the annual general meeting in Suva on June 7 and the minutes of the meeting and the names of the new officials were sent to the IAAF for approval.

In a letter to new president Joe Rodan, IAAF general secretary Essar Gabriel said they were happy with the outcome of the AGM.

"With regards to Athletics Fiji specifically we would request that during your tenure in office you ensure that the pending necessary amendments are made to the constitution of your federation and that all duly registered club, irrespective of their location in your country can be part of Athletics Fiji," he told Rodan.

"We look forward to our future collaboration for the promotion and development of athletics in Fiji."

Rodan said they could now move on with full confidence given by the local and global body.

"Even though we were elected during the AGM by our key affiliates and stakeholders, there was this one issue about recognition by the world body and now with this letter, it also puts it to rest," he said.

Rodan said two of their priorities were to review the constitution, streamline processes and communicate it to the members.
