IDSF Athletes Commsiion Meets 19/01/2009

AvatarThe IDSF Athletes Commission held its first meeting in Barcelona, Spain, concurrently with that of the IDSF Presidium last weekend. The first exchange of views on several topics between athletes and Presidium members was  marked by mutual understanding and the determination to improve the dialogue even further.

The Athletes Commission is made up of Alyna Basiuk (RUS) and Timo Kulcak (GER). The two were elected by their peers at the recent IDSDF World DanceSport Championships Latin and Standard, and they have started to serve athletes in all disciplines and age grades already. 

"Improved communication between us, the athletes, and IDSF tops our agenda at this point," said Timo Kulcak, after discussing some of the concerns brought up by their fellow competitors with Secertary General Marco Sietas and Sports Director Heinz Spaeker on 15 January.

Following a suggestion made by Alyna and Timo, the Presidium agreed to launch a dedicated section on this website for the new Commission to inform fellow athletes about the outcome of the first meeting. It will go up by the end of the month.

An article about the IDSF Athletes Commission will be published in issue # 4 of the World DanceSport Magazine at the same time.
