MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. Vladimir Salnikov, the president of the Russian Swimming Federation (RSF), told TASS on Friday he intended to run for another term in view of good results of the national team at the 2016 Olympics in Rio last month.
"I have made a decision to take part in the elections," Salnikov, Russia’s legendary four-time Olympic champion, said in an interview with TASS. "I have no information regarding other candidates wishing to run for the post of the RSF president."
"The date for the RSF evaluation session has not been defined as of yet and will be announced following the presidium’s meeting," Salnikov, who has been at the helm of the federation since 2010, added.
At the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro last month Russian swimmers clinched a total of four medals (two silver and two bronze).
