MOSCOW, December 9. /TASS/. Dmitry Shlyakhtin has been re-elected as the head of the All-Russian Athletics Federation (ARAF), a TASS correspondent reports.
The elections were held on December 9 at an ARAF report and election conference in Moscow. Shlyakhtin gained the votes of 36 delegates while his rival in the election runoff Andrei Silnov received 31 votes. One ballot paper was invalidated.
Apart from Shlyakhtin, three more candidates ran for the post of Russia’s athletics chief: two-time Olympic pole vault champion Yelena Isinbayeva, ARAF General Director Mikhail Butov and 2008 Olympic high jump champion Silnov. During the conference, Isinbayeva and Silnov withdrew their candidacies.
Shlyakhtin has been at the helm of the ARAF since January 2016. He has been sports minister of the Samara Region since 2012. He also holds the posts of the chairman of the board of directors of FC Krylia Sovetov (Samara) and vice-president of the ice hockey club Lada (Togliatti).
