Former IOC member Beatrice Allen who is currently the first vice president of the Gambia National Olympic Committee GNOC is running for the office of president of the committee in the November 27 elective congress.
She is running against Police Commissioner Lamin King Colley.
On Monday, Allen unveiled her reform agenda covering 2021- 2024.
The agenda contains a 10-point action plan based on her vision to keep The Gambia on track for national and international sporting success.
“Cognisant of the size of the task ahead of us, from promoting grassroots and community sport development to lack of standard infrastructures, the need for qualified judges, coaches and referees and adherence to the WADA Code for clean sport, only a good and experienced team like mine, can deliver that,” her campaign said.
Allen believes that her team of professionals will implement this vision for the development of Gambian sports in ten key action points and everything they do, will be to the highest standards of professionalism, excellence and integrity.
The ten key action points are:
Good governance; diversity and participation of women in sports; community service for sustainability; development of high performance; strong collaboration with government; strategies for international sporting success; principles and values of Olympism; athletes career development support and training of coaches and administrators.
