Raffaele Chiulli is set to become the president of the Global Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) on a permanent basis after the organisation announced that he will stand unopposed for the role.
Chiulli became the new leader of GAISF last November following the shock death of former president Patrick Baumann. He is now set to be permanently elected during the GAISF General Assembly on May 10 in Gold Coast, Australia.
Chiulli has served as the president of the International Powerboating Union (UIM) since 2007, and as president of the Association of Recognised International Sports Federations (ARISF) since 2013.
He has also been a GAISF vice-president since 2015, senior vice-president since 2016 and a member of the International Olympic Committee Sport and Active Society Commission since 2014.
The GAISF General Assembly will take place during the 2019 SportAccord convention in Gold Coast.
