    News From Around the World - EME NEWS (JAN 12, 2016)

    EA President reports on Delivering Change - LAUSANNE (SUI): European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen has released his 'Delivering Change' report – a review of European Athletics' work in 2016 to deliver his Leading Change agenda and make athletics 'Your Sport for Life,’ informs European Athletics.  "In the 20 months since I was elected to lead European Athletics our sport has navigated through a very challenging period. Our agenda for securing European Athletics’ financial future, modernising its operations and making athletics ‘Your Sport for Life’ throughout Europe was somewhat overtaken by events largely out of our control, and the focus of our efforts has been dictated by priorities different from those we might have imagined in April 2015,” he said. He added the “tough decisions taken by the IAAF and the role Europe has played in the governance reform process are a source of great pride” and the sport has “shown the willingness to face up to the adversity and take the necessary steps towards rebuilding the trust.”
