Terry Reilly Leaves FITA As Executive Director
FITA wishes to thank Terry for the work accomplished in the last 3 years. He was one of the key factors in the success of the Archery competition in Athens where he used his experience from Sydney Olympics as Venue and Competition Manager.
“We wish him the best of luck in the future and are sure that his passion for the sport will continue. Terry intends to return to Australia and I am sure that we will meet at the Masters Games in Sydney 2009 where hopefully we will both be competing” stated Tom Dielen, the new Secretary General of FITA.
“FITA has progressed to an exciting TV sport since I competed in Munich and Montreal and we are exploring ways to give us a greater share of media coverage to excite young people to ‘Touch Archery’ so that they can share in the ideals and spirit of sport.” said Terry. “Recently, we have added a number of new Member Associations, opened several centers of excellence around the world and formalized our coaching methods. I have enjoyed my time at FITA in Lausanne and look forward to our sport growing even further.”
The FITA Secretary General will act as Executive Director until the next Council Meeting in October.
