World Archery is very proud that for the first time an Executive Board Member was elected from an African Member Association. Mr Aladin GABR is the President of World Archery Africa and has been instrumental in the development of the Egyptian team that won the gold medal at the Mediterranean Games in Mersin earlier this year and also obtained the gold with Ibrahim SABRY at the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore. The number of Member Associations is growing steadily in Africa and therefore having a member in the Executive Board is a logical consequence of the development of archery in Africa.
