SERGEY BUBKA ELECTED IAAF VICE PRESIDENT

Sergey Bubka has thanked those National Federations who voted for him to continue in his role as IAAF Vice President and pledged his total commitment to the IAAF and athletics family. Bubka received 187 National Federations votes.

"First of all, I would like to congratulate Seb Coe on his campaign, which gave us great opportunities to discuss many challenges of our sport, communicate with our Member Federations, share our vision for the future of athletics and find solutions. From the very bottom of my heart, I would like to thank the Member Federations, who voted for my candidacy as IAAF President as well as for my Vice-Presidency role. Thanks a lot to my family and my team who supported and assisted me throughout all these months – we've done a fantastic job together.

"I will continue to serve athletics as I've done through all my life in any position our Athletics family trusts me to hold. I wish good luck to the new IAAF President and remain committed to the ideas and proposals I delivered throughout my campaign."
