Electing the Oceanic representative 28/01/2020

Oceanic Representative We are happy to announce that the Athletes Commission is having an election for a new representative, as successor of Antonio Micheli, our Oceanic representative. We have two candidates for this position and they are (in alphabetical order of surname):

    Brodie Barden; and
    Sheldon Gilbert.

Short resume Brody Barden, candidate Oceanic representative WDSF Athletes Commission

I present myself to become a member of the athletes commission for the oceanic region as I wish to create a stronger relationship between Oceania and the rest of the world. If elected I hope to encourage more participation from the oceanic members and for greater incentive for the rest of the world to visit the region. Having been an active competitor in WDSF for over a decade I hope to represent all athletes’ best interests. As a fun, hard working and approachable person I hope to be someone that athletes can come to and express their concerns and ideas. I would very appreciate your vote to represent the athletes in the best way possible.

Short resume Sheldon Gilbert, candidate Oceanic representative WDSF Athletes Commission

My name is Sheldon Gilbert and I am a WDSF Adult athlete based is Melbourne, Australia. My partner and I compete both nationally and internationally, forging relationships with competitors and promoting participation in events across the region.
My residence and extensive participation in the regional competitions enable me to be well suited to represent the oceanic region as I have a deep understanding of my fellow competitors and their particular needs.
The Oceanic representative position would provide me with the opportunity to further develop and refine the sport that we love.

We will be conducting an electronic election from 28 January 2020 up to and including 4 February 2020 12:00 hours (CET time).

As the WDSF is a body that is governed by Swiss law, all athletes who are 18 years of age or over are allowed to vote in this election, providing they are registered as an WDSF Athlete in the Oceanic region

Should you have any questions about the voting process, please do let us know. All rules for the voting process are on the voting form. Please read them through thoroughly before voting.
