The International Triathlon Union (ITU) has announced that Hungarian triathlete Tamás Tóth has been elected as the Chair of the ITU Athletes’ Committee. Swedish triathlete Lisa Norden has been designated the Chair Deputy, and will be the representant of the Athletes’ Committee when Tóth is not available.
“I would like to thank Jessica Harrision’s hard work as the Chair of the Athletes’ Committee in previous years,” Tamás Tóth said. “Also, I would like to thank all the athletes for their trust. I understand that this is a huge responsibility, but I strongly believe that I have the pleasure to work with the best and most motivated team in the Athletes’ Committee.
“Since I am an active competitor, I trust that I can represent the athletes’ needs and interests in a higher level considering that I will have the same experiences as them. My mission is to represent every single one of the athletes and stand for their reasonable needs on a higher level.”
