European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen has published his third annual report entitled ‘Delivering Change.’

The 20-page report which is available to read as a pdf under “related documents” offers an overview of European Athletics' activities up to the end of the third calendar year of President Hansen's mandate and outlines the progress made towards realising the five-part agenda outlined in his election manifesto 'Leading Change'.

“As an organisation, we have made real progress in the work to secure our financial future, modernise our operations and make athletics ‘Your Sport for Life’ throughout Europe. Our sport delivered many great events, the highlight being last summer’s wildly successful IAAF World Championships in Athletics on European soil in London. But most importantly, it really seems like the public’s attention returned to our athletes and their performances after a dark period in which disturbing news from off the track dominated the media,” said President Hansen.

“From my perspective, I see 2017 as a year of success and satisfaction even if we still have a lot of hard work to do and challenges to address in the future. The feedback I have received from our Member Federations and others in the sport during my travels has confirmed my impression.

“The report follows the same basic structure of the manifesto and previous years’ reports and includes scorecards for each of the five priority agendas summarising the current status of the projects promised. If more detailed information is required on any aspect of our work I invite you to contact me, our CEO Christian Milz or any of the members of our Executive Board. We will all be happy to assist you.”
