December 5, 2011Incumbent FIG President Prof. Bruno Grandi (ITA) is a candidate for reelection at the FIG General Assembly, October 25 - 27, 2012 in Cancun (MEX).
He will solicit votes from the 130 national affiliated federations for a fifth mandate.
Bruno Grandi was first elected in August 1996 at the 70th Congress in Atlanta (USA). He succeeded Yuri Titov of Russia after a twenty-year reign.
When asked about his reasons for running, Prof. Grandi casts back to his age of seventy-seven, hoping to leverage his experience in sports to bring numerous projects to fruition. "This will be my last mandate!" announced the President, with a nod to the international gymnastics community. "But before I take my leave, there are several issues that need my attention, and I am committed to finishing what I started."
According to statute, candidates for the 2012 elections must file for office at the FIG Secretariat by May 21, 2012 midnight, at the latest.
