Taking a lead from president Thomas Bach and his Agenda 2020 review, International Olympic Committee member Sergey Bubka has promised a review of athletics if he is elected president of the International Association of Athletics Federations later this year.
Entitled Vision 2025, Bubka promised this week that his proposal would try and get the athletics world to work together “to build a stronger sport for the future”.
The Ukrainian, who announced his intention to stand in January, goes up against fellow IAAF vice-president Seb Coe in the race to succeed Lamine Diack as president at the federations Beijing congress in August.
“‘Vision 2025’ will be the most thorough review ever taken into every aspect of Athletics worldwide and will be based on collaboration with the Athletics Family from the very beginning,” Bubka said in a statement.
“Its aim will be to identify and examine every significant element of our sport and determine how it can be improved to ensure we are in the best possible shape for the future.”.
