South American athletics will have a representative on the Executive Committee of the World Association of Olympians, after the legendary Guyanese sprinter Aliann Pompey, champion of the 400 m dash at the Commonwealth Games, was selected during a General Assembly that took place out virtually.

“I am truly grateful for the support I have received, especially from the other member countries that voted for this position in the elections and I look forward to working with each of them; making sure that the continuous progress and the success of the Americas are noticed internationally ”, said Pompey in statements reproduced by the newspaper of her country Chronicle Sport.

Pompey was nominated for the Executive Committee of the world entity by the Guyana Olympic Association.
