Gymnastics Federation elects new council
04 March 2019 | Sports
This appointment follows the Namibia Gymnastics Federation’s annual general meeting held under the auspices of the Namibia Sports Commission, the Namibia National Olympic Committee and the Commonwealth Games Association.
The meeting is the largest and most important gathering on the federation’s calendar, with the assembly being the federation’s supreme body that elects leaders that will serve on the council for the next five years.
The event was attended by around 50 delegates from 19 clubs.
A priority for the newly elected executive is to review the federation’s constitution, which needs to be in line with the current legal requirements of the sports act and the constitution of the International Gymnastics Federation.
Other members are Valereis Geldenhuys (honorary president), Sharifa Wentworth (vice president - finance), Meagan Bierbach (vice president - public relations), Wietsa Snyman (vice president - liaison), Djamel Meziane (section president - men's artistic gymnastics), Shariefa Mouton (section president - women's artistic gymnastics), Leonie Botes (section president - rhythmic gymnastics), Vaughan Ahrens (section president - trampoline and tumbling), Marianne Bock (section president - aerobic gymnastics), Selene Williams (secretary general), Vesselin Kostin (national technical director) and Nicolene Labuschagne (national medical director).
