Members of ISSF Athletes Committee

The athletes committee consists of a chairman and six members. Its objective is to gather information and opinions from athletes on their needs and problems and to establish a direct link with the athletes within the ISSF. The committee coordinates activities with Athletes Committees of other international federations; it strives for the best possible conditions for the training, accommodation and living conditions for the athletes and supports the fight against doping and drugs.

Another key role of this committee is the improvement of communication amongst athletes in order to create clear information flows regarding all important aspects that involve the wellbeing of athletes. By collecting comments, opinions and proposals from athletes the committee has the opportunity to make recommendations to the ISSF Administrative Council.

The Athletes Committee members are present during most ISSF supervised competitions and can be contacted at all times directly under athletes@issf-sports.org.
