29 March 2010 - New Composition of the Anti-Doping Panel

New Composition of the Anti-Doping Panel Lausanne - 29 March 2010 As the Chairman, Mr Jean-Pierre MORAND leaves, the former World Champion Steve LIEBERMAN joins the Anti-Doping Panel as member.  Mr John A. FAYLOR is the new chairman.   Mr Jean-Pierre MORAND, after changing law firms, was appointed to legally represent WADA. This change creates a possible conflict of interest and therefore he can no longer act as chair or member of the FITA Anti-Doping Panel. FITA would like to thank Mr MORAND for his excellent work in the anti-doping matters for FITA. FITA will for sure continue its cooperation with Mr MORAND, for other matters not related to doping, where there is no possible conflict of interest.    Mr John A. FAYLOR accepted the position of chairman, replacing Mr MORAND. Mr. Steve LIEBERMAN accepted to replace Mr FAYLOR’s position as a member. Mr LIEBERMAN is a former Field World Champion (1970) and World Record holder (1973) and has been involved with FITA up until 1999, being part of the Constitution & Rules Committee and Council. Mr LIEBERMAN is now again on the track of World Archery and would like to warmly welcome him back!   Mr. Vicente MARTINEZ ORGA is no longer part of the Panel, as he was elected to the Target Committee in Ulsan Congress in 2009, and as per the FITA Rules, no person shall be elected to more than one body of FITA. We thank him for his dedication to FITA and World Archery.   FITA Communication
