The election will determine the athletes to join Korea Republic’s International Olympic Committee member, Ryu Seungmin and the five already elected members earlier this year at the Liebherr 2018 World Team Championships in Halmstad; the period of service is from 2018 to 2022.
Only the name of Slovakia’s Alena Kanova was submitted as the wheelchair represented, thus she is elected automatically. The nominations for standing players are: Hungary’s Zsofia Arloy, Australia’s Trevor Hirth and Spain’s José Manuel Ruiz.
Voting dates and times to elect the standing representative are 10.00 am to 5 .00pm each day on Wednesday 17th, Thursday 18th and Friday 19th October.
A voting station will be prepared in the venue in a prominent location.
National associations are requested to advise athletes of the election; we look forward to an active participation.
