Sebastian Coe elected IAAF president

0 0
Former Olympic 1500m champion Lord Coe is announced as the new president of the IAAF, the body that governs world athletics.

The 58-year-old Briton beat rival Sergey Bubka, a former Olympic pole vault champion, by 115 votes to 92.

Lord Coe's appointment as the president of the IAAF is at a critical time as the sport of athletics faces a series of doping allegations.

Double Olympic champion Mo Farah and Olympic 1500m silver medallist Steve Cram have backed their countryman to make a positive impact.

Following his election, Coe tweeted that, after the birth of his children, this was the most "momentous moment" of his life.
The former chairman of London 2012, Coe replaces 82-year-old Senegalese Lamine Diack, who has been in charge for 16 years.
