Skype The Prez | Part II 10/10/2016

Lukas Hinder, Sir Craig Reedie, Ashli Williamson The second instalment of "Skype The Prez," the informal exchange on topical issues between WDSF President Lukas Hinder and the chair of the Athletes' Commission, Ashli Williamson, was the real thing: a Skype call covering some 7,500 km between the two parties.

The call was recorded on 23 September in Chengdu, CHN, where President Hinder had just returned from the welcome banquet prior to the 2016 World Latin, and in Aarhus, DEN, where Ashli had just put in another day of training.

Two issues were dealt with: a first question about the work of the Competition Manipulation Task Force, the other about a case of alleged competition manipulation in Stuttgart, GER. President Hinder's answer to a third question regarding the situation in Russia was already published earlier. Click here!
