Welcome to the "Inside IAAF" section of the official IAAF web site.
Here you will find a wealth of information concerning the structure and workings of the International Association of Athletics Federations, profiles of the members of the IAAF Council and details of the various Committees and Commissions that aid Council in their great responsibility of governing the sport of Athletics world-wide.

Together with my colleagues on the Council, we will build on the legacy left us by Primo Nebiolo and, as a team, strive to ensure that Athletics continues to play its leading role among the sports of the world, for the greater benefit of all who practice it as athletes or enjoy it as fans and enthusiasts.

It is a demanding task, but one that we undertake with determination and enthusiasm, in the knowledge that our efforts will benefit millions of youngsters around the world and encourage them to live healthier lives and compete in a true spirit of fair play and equality.

Lamine Diack
IAAF President
