IPC Elects New President in the First Round

Brazil's Andrew Parsons has been elected as the new President of the International Paralympic Committee in the first round. 

“I am absolutely delighted and I don’t know what to say. I would like to thank the IPC membership for their trust” said Parsons, who becomes only the third President in IPC’s history. “Throughout my campaign I think I have explained what I plan to do as IPC President and the membership understood and gave me their support...

I think the election, winning in the first round, shows very strong support from the membership. It shows they trust me and I am really delighted."
