Marisol Casado Attends IOC Conference on Women in Sport

15 March 2004

On March 9, 2004 the 3rd World Conference on Women and Sport took place in   Marrakech, Morocco. The ITU representative was Marisol Casado; President of   ETU, ITU Executive Board member and Executive Director of the Spanish Triathlon   Federation. More than 600 delegates from 137 countries were in attendance, including   IOC President Jacques Rogge.

  The Conference made several recommendations, the first of which reaffirmed the   targets established in 1996 for the International Olympic Committee, International   Sports Federations and National Olympic Committees to have at least 20% women   on their executive boardsand legislative bodies by 2005.

The final conference resolution expressed a statement of regret at “the   slow pace in implementing fully the action plan formulated by inter-governmental   and non-governmental organisations and the lack of concrete, visible and legible   actions at the grass root level.” Around the Rings reported that, with   only one woman, Gunilla Lindberg of Sweden - among the 14 members of the Executive   Board, the IOC needs to add at least two more by 2005 to comply with its own   stated goals.

The complete recommendations are available at the following link:
