Whilst a number of athletes from Wales will be pulling on a GB vest at the London 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships, we will also have a number of Officials at the championships ensuring that everything is running efficiently and to the rulebook.
Dave Jessett has received the very high honours of acting as Competition Director for the World Championships overseeing the entirety of the competition making certain that it is well organised and runs to plan. Over 10 days of competition with athletes of the highest calibre, this is no easy feat. Dave will be joined by Sue Maughan, Sue Alvey, Carina Jones, and Amy Price, one of our promising young Officials, who will fulfil the roles of Field Judge providing various roles throughout the 10 days of competition in the field events. Ceri Jones, another of our young Officials, will be performing the role of Call Room Steward, gathering all athletes ahead of their event and ensuring that adhering to all IAAF rules before taking to the competition area whilst keeping on time. Jeff Marsden will be the Technical Information Centre steward responding to enquiries from team staff and athletes and processing appeals. John Chidlow will be timekeeping the race walks on the final day joined by Bob and Olive Dobson who will be judging the competition.
Welsh Athletics are very proud that so many Officials have been selected to officiate at the London 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships, on top of those who also officiated at the World Para Athletics Championships, and we wish them the very best of luck for the competition.
