FITA Athletes Committee Elected By Athletes
The Athletes Committee of the International Archery Federation will be renewed at the next World Outdoor Target Archery Championships in 2007 in Leipzig, Germany. The final procedure for the vote has not been finalized yet but will be very similar to the procedure for the IOC Athletes commission. There will be a requirement for Member Associations to have their own athlete representatives before being eligible to propose a candidate in order to actively involve athletes.
The current Athletes Committee which has a long tradition includes the following archers: Alison Williamson from Great Britain (chairwoman), Hiroshi Yamamoto from Japan and Goran Villi from Croatia (members). These three athletes are active archers competing internationally. Williamson and Yamamoto both won a medal (bronze and silver respectively) in the Athens Olympic Games last year.
