Karamarinov re-elected President of European Athletics

Dobromir Karamarinov (BUL) was re-elected as the European Athletics President for the next four years from 2023 to 2027 at the 28th European Athletics Congress in Belgrade, Serbia on Saturday.

The three Vice Presidents elected were Cherry Alexander (GBR), Jean Gracia (FRA) and Karin Grute Movin (SWE).

To ensure a gender balance, for the first time ever there was a constitutional requirement for two representatives of each gender to be elected to the combined positions of European Athletics President and Vice President.

Consequently, for the first time ever in the 53-year history of European Athletics, there are two female Vice Presidents.

The following 13 Council members were elected: Slobodan Brankovic (SRB), Frank Carreras (GIB), Raul Chapado (ESP), Anne Farseth (NOR), Marton Gyulai (HUN), Tia Hellebaut (BEL), Anna Kirnova (SVK), Jürgen Kessing (GER), Stefano Mei (ITA), Gvantsa Mikeladze (GEO), Antti Philakovski (FIN), Erich Teigamägi (EST) and Aleksandra Vojneska-Zikova (MKD).

The European Athletics Constitution requires that a minimum of five members of each gender be represented on the European Athletics Council.
