Sprinter in IAAF Roadshow in South Africa


Liberia’s best ever junior 100m sprinter, Kokurlo Roberts, will today depart the country for Johannesburg, South Africa to participate in the Global Roadshow, which is focused on ensuring that there is a comprehensive understanding of reform proposals in the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF).

The Roadshow is expected to bring together all member federations of Africa to Johannesburg to discuss the ‘Time for Change Document’ which explains in full the reform proposals, why they are important, how they fit the IAAF’s overall vision, and the associated opportunities and benefits for the game, ahead of the Special Congress on December
3 in Monaco, France.

Mr. Roberts, 28 , former 100m and 200m sprinter is expected to represent the country in the IAAF Governance Reform Roadshow, scheduled for Wednesday, November 2.

“The LAF welcomes change and anything that results to benefit our game should always be cherished and encouraged by us,” Mr. Roberts said.

“We are going to listen and ask questions because athletes are the integral part of the reform,” he added.

IAAF President Sebastian Coe and the Working Group of Governance Structure Reform (WGGSR) initiated the Global Roadshow as part of the governance structure reform process.

The Roadshow started on October 10 and was held at other five destinations.
