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.
