Saint Lucia’s Eddie Hazel Elected To World Aquatics Bureau


Eddie Hazell, President of the Saint Lucia Aquatics Federation, has been elected to sit on the World Aquatics Bureau.

Hazell will represent Zone II, along with Dylan Carter of Trinidad and Tobago.

At the next PanAm Aquatics Executive meeting on 23 January, Hazell will be officially appointed either as a Direct Executive Member or as a World At Large Member.

Hazell becomes the first Saint Lucian and the first administrator from the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) to hold a seat on the Bureau.

The Bureau comprises the President of World Athletics, Husain Al-Musallam, and thirty-nine Bureau Members.

The Congress elects twenty-two Bureau Members as continental representatives.

Meanwhile, at the Claude Sufrin Meet in Martinique last weekend, Saint Lucian swimmers captured 27 medals.

Outstanding performances came from Sapphire Parks of Sea Jays (4Gold medals), James Sylvester (Sea Jays, one gold, two silver, one bronze) and Zania Brathwaite (Sharks, one gold, 2 silver).

Officials say they await ratification of a new age group long-course best from Sapphire and a range of new personal best marks for the swimmers representing the three clubs.

  1. This man I think would have been a solid president of our national Olympic Committee but sadly he lost the election battle to the cult!
