Herbert elected to FILA Athlete Commission

FILA News Bureau BUDAPEST, HUNGARY - Seven athletes were elected by their peers in Budapest, Hungary, at the World Wrestling Championships to serve on the International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles’ (FILA) newly formed Athlete Commission.

The commission, which was part of the organization’s commit- ment to involve athletes in the international federation, includes three Olympic champions and wrestlers from three continents. The athletes on the commission include Maria Prevolaraki, Greece; Carol Huynh, Canada; Jake Herbert, USA; Kaori Icho, Japan; Christophe Guenot, France; Hamid Soryan Reihanpour, Iran, and Tomas Lorincz, Hungary.

One of the athletes will be elected by the members to serve on FILA’s governing body, the Bureau, and to serve as chairman of the committee.
