Saint Lucia’s Fortuna Belrose, president of the National Olympic Committee, has been re-elected Regional Vice-President of the Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF).
Mrs. Belrose is Regional Vice-President for the Caribbean, one of six regional leaders for the organisation.
Mrs. Belrose will continue to serve under Dame Louise Martin DBE, who was re-elected CGF President for a second four-year term.
Dame Louise (Scotland) was re-elected by acclamation, four years after she took up the role in 2015, when she became the first female president in the history of the Commonwealth Sports Movement.
Also of Caribbean interest, Simons J.P (Bermuda) was voted Regional Vice-President for the Americas, whilst the Sport Committee now includes Ephraim Penn (British Virgin Islands).
The  Federation’s General Assembly was held in Kigali, Rwanda, at the Kigali Convention Centre.
The Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) is the organisation that is responsible for the direction and control of the Commonwealth Games, and for delivering on the vision of the Commonwealth Sports Movement: to build peaceful, sustainable and prosperous communities globally by inspiring Commonwealth Athletes to drive the impact and ambition of all Commonwealth Citizens through Sport.
