Agents at Annual Meeting
LISBON (POR): Athletes Representatives organisation AAM held its annual meeting in Lisbon. It was also briefly visited by Sports Minister of Portugal Mr. Joao Rebelo. More than 40 track agents who represent the majority of top athletes discussed current issues related to latest developments in the sport. Agents welcomed on behalf of athletes the introduction of IAAF World Rankings but also raised concerns connected to the use of rankings as qualification tool for main championships. The athletes representatives put together proposals which will help athletes to have the qualification more flexible and defined. Agents supported the vision to modernise and change the IAAF Diamond League from 2020, but said also the existing meets should not be in danger while changes are implemented. The continuation of the dialogue with the IAAF and involvement of agents in decisions making process is another aim. The next Annual Meeting in 2019 will be held in Boston.
