Farida Iddriss attends FINA Reform Committee meeting

Ghana’s Farida Iddriss has attended the meeting of  FINA’s Reform Committee meeting in Lausanne.

The FINA Reform Committee finalised their discussions on a series of strategic recommendations, which have been developed to modernise FINA, the world governing body for aquatic sports, and take its six disciplines into a new era.

The Reform Committee, announced by FINA President Captain Husain Al-Musallam on his election day, 5 June, assessed potential changes to FINA and provide strategic recommendations on a variety of areas including governance, communication, marketing, gender equity, events, athlete safeguarding, sport medicine and sport development.

The Reform Committee which is chaired by Mr. Francois Carrard presented the outcome of months of hard work from the various sub-Committees at the FINA Headquarters in Lausanne (SUI) over a two-day meeting on October 4-5, 2021.

During the meeting, different areas were discussed and major measures to be implemented were identified. The whole business model of FINA has been broken down and concrete recommendations were proposed following the conclusion of the extensive assessment.

 “Today marks an important milestone for FINA towards the reinforcement of its commitment to authenticity, transparency and reform. The Reform Committee reached a consensus on several key measures to be adopted as part of the change led by FINA President Al-Musallam,” said Francois Carrard. “The recommendations will be presented by the Reform Committee at the upcoming FINA Congress. They will enhance the current business model of FINA and lead to a more contemporary and transparent governing body.”

Reform Committee member, former World champion and athletes representative Britta Kamrau said: “After months of study, the Reform Committee has done a great service to FINA by laying out the path towards the reforms. Now FINA must implement these sustainable changes and build a stronger organisation for the future to better serve its athletes.”

The outcome of the meeting will be presented to the FINA members on the occasion of the FINA World Swimming Championship (25m) and the Aquatics Festival in Abu Dhabi (UAE) from December 16-21.

Farida Iddriss was a member of Ghana’s team that organised the CANA Zone 2 championship in 2020. She is now a member of the Local Organising Committee LOC for the upcoming 14th Junior and Senior Swimming and Open water championships to be hosted in Ghana.
