Kiribati Athletic Association has elected a strong Committee who will serve until the next AGM in March 2006.
The 2005 Committee is:
President: Mr. Simon Burennatu
Vice-President: Mr. Tiarie Uale (Re-elected 2 years)

Assist.Secr.: Mr. Tierata Taukaban
Treasurer: Mr. Tonana George (Elected 1 year)

The election of Tonana George fills a gap left by the emigration of the previous incumbent.
Secretary, Mr David Little said, "the election of Tekooki Teieka is hopefully the first of many positions to be filled by currently active athletes and maybe the beginning of an "Athletes' Commission".
OAA takes this opportunity to congratulate the new Committee on their election and wish them every success with their future endeavours.
