Dame Valerie Adams Elected to join the World Athletics Council

Dame Valerie Adams Elected to join the World Athletics Council

Olympic Gold Medallist, Dame Valerie Adams of New Zealand has made history alongside World pole vault record-holder Renaud Lavillenie. Both are becoming the first active athlete to join the World Athletics Council as full voting members, following the governance reforms introduced in 2016.

The newly elected Athletes’ Commission today selected Lavillenie as the new Chairperson and Adams as the deputy chairperson, and they will become the two athlete representatives on the Council for the next four years.

Adams, who is serving her second term on the Athletes’ Commission, said she completely supported Lavillenie as chair and was delighted to see two athletes included in the Council.

“Honoured to be elected Deputy Chairperson for the World Athletics Athletes Commission and to have a seat in Council alongside our chair Renaud Lavillenie. This is a step in the right direction in making sure the athletes are being heard”

The importance of athletes to decision-making within World Athletics was recognised and enshrined in legislation as part of the governance and integrity reforms approved in December 2016.

Under the 2019 Constitution, the Chairperson and one other member of the Athletes’ Commission – one male and one female – become full voting members of the IAAF Council.

World Athletics president Sebastian Coe welcomed Lavillenie and Adams to the 26-member Council, saying he expected they would make a substantial contribution to the sport’s decision-making body.
