Neven Ilic in an armchair

No suspense in the Pan-American Olympic movement. The only candidate for re-election, Chilean Neven Ilic (pictured above) was unanimously reappointed for another term as president of Panam Sports, the association of National Olympic Committees of the Americas. He will be assisted by three vice-presidents: Argentinian Mario Moccia, Mexican Jimena Saldaña, and Keith Joseph, representative of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. Another Mexican, Ivar Sisniega, will take the post of secretary general. Richard Peterkin (Saint Lucia), former IOC member, will act as treasurer. The Panam Sports executive committee will also be made up of Tricia Smith (Canada), Susanne Lyons (United States), Juan Santiago Estrada (Nicaragua), Alphonso Bridgewater (Saint Kitts and Nevis), Veda Bruno Víctor (Grenada), Erskine Simmons (Barbados), Camilo Pérez (Paraguay), Nicole Hoevertsz (Aruba), and Miguel Angel Mujica (Chile). Finally, he will be reinforced by Canadian Michael Chambers, on the legal committee, Guyanese Aliann Pompey, president of the Athletes’ Commission, and Guatemalan Francisco Lee, president of the Association of Pan American Confederations.
