European Athletics President Svein Arne Hansen has published his fourth annual report, this year entitled ‘Change Delivered’, which looks at the progress made towards realising the five-part agenda outlined in his 2015 election manifesto 'Leading Change'.

The 22-page report provides an overview of European Athletics' activities up to the end of the fourth and final year of President Hansen's current mandate and is available to read as a pdf file here or can be downloaded from the Related Documents section on this page of the European Athletics website.

“The mandate for which I was elected as President of European Athletics is now drawing to a close and this report will be my final review of the work we have undertaken and particularly the priority agenda outlined in my 2015 manifesto ‘Leading Change’,” said President Hansen.

“It covers a time of extraordinary activity and progress for both our organisation and our sport and we can all be proud of the change that has been delivered. Most of the contents – including the status of 24 projects which European Athletics has given a high priority to – have already been covered on the European Athletics website or the Inside Track newsletter, but it is important for transparency and accountability to bring the main points together in one document.

"In the final section of Change Delivered, I look forward and set out my thoughts on the work needed for the period from 2019-2023. Work has already begun on this. I have a personal mission of putting athletics into every home, making it a central part of how people engage with sport; and recognising the rapidly changing cultural, social and technological environment across Europe, I want to see athletics on every phone as well. I am determined to make athletics even more exciting and compelling across the generations,” added Hansen.
