Liaisons and Chairmen approved by the LEN Bureau
The newly elected LEN Bureau held its first meeting this Saturday, again in a video-conference format. All the members approved unanimously the composition of the various LEN Committees and their respective Bureau Liaisons.
“We are happy to announce our new committees and the Bureau Liaisons overseeing their invaluable work” LEN President Paolo Barelli said after the meeting. “We all know how important job these committees are delivering before, during and between our events, that they are the engines behind LEN activities. It was an honour to see the long list of great nominees our National Federations submitted. Europe is a magnificent continent where we have plenty of professionals who have outstanding knowledge and expertise in organising and running competitions or to offer outstanding support in other important fields. This makes Europe the No. 1 continent in the aquatic world and this makes LEN a very strong sport institute.”
Here are the Bureau Liaisons who shall oversee the work of the respective committees. Since swimming has enjoyed an enormous growth, the TSC will have two Liaisons in the next four years, Vice-President Pia Holmen (DEN) and Marco Stacchiotti (LUX). Water polo will be overseen by Alexandar Sostar (SRB) and Joe Caruana Curran (MLT). The diving Liaison is Vice-President Andrii Vlaskov (UKR), artistic swimming will be supervised by Alexey Vlasenko (RUS), open water swimming by Noam Zwi (ISR), and Masters by Sami Wahlman (FIN).
Vice-Presidents Tunde Szabo (HUN) will be responsible for the Media, Dimitris Diathesopoulos (GRE) for Disciplines Coordination, Marius van Zeijts (NED) for Special Projects. Christer Magnusson (SWE) shall liaise with the Medical Committee, Camelia Potec (ROU) with the Athletes Committee and Predrag Sloboda (CRO) with the Marketing Committee.
Five of the six technical committees will be led by new chairmen.
