Chusovitina, Pegan to FIG Athletes Commission

Oksana Chusovitina (Uzbekistan) and Aljaž Pegan (Slovenia) were elected to the FIG Athletes Commission on Friday at the world championships in Montreal. …

Chusovitina succeeds Great Britain’s Beth Tweddle, who was elected after the 2012 Olympics in London. Pegan takes over (from) Jani Tanskanen (Finland) …

At the rhythmic world championships in September, Lyubov Charkashyna (Belarus) was re-elected to be the FIG Athlete Representative …


One issue Oksana will bring to the table is minutes per apparatus allowed / routine during podium training. Athletes and coaches were vocal in their concern that not enough time was allowed to safely get used to the competition apparatus.

The podium apparatus sat empty for much of every day. More time could easily be allowed.
