IJRC Director Eleonora Ottaviani on the election for the 2018- 2022 FEI Athlete Representative: “It is the riders’ responsibility to vote”

                The voting phase for the 2018-2022 FEI Athlete Representative for the  discipline of jumping is open, and the International Jumping Riders Club (IJRC) is urging riders to get involved and use their right to vote. Olympic Champion Rodrigo Pessoa (BRA) has been the FEI Athlete  Representative for the last four years, and now four candidates are in the run to  follow in his footsteps. “This is the second time there is a FEI Athlete Representative election. In the  past, the IJRC had the privilege to choose the candidate – now it is up to the  showjumping community as a whole, or at least up to those with a right to vote,” says IJRC Director Eleonora Ottaviani. “At the last election the votes were few,  so we hope to create more awareness this time around. It is the riders’  responsibility to vote, and if they don’t – they should not complain after. Get on  the train now, before it leaves the station!” “The election of the FEI Athlete Representative is very important. The athlete  that will be elected will carry the voice of the riders inside the FEI Jumping  Committee,” Ottaviani explains. “Furthermore, the person elected will be a part  of the Athlete Commission – which is formed by representatives across all FEI  … READ MORE
