The Indonesian Gymnastics Federation (Persani) Chairwoman, Ita Yuliati, is elected as a council member of the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG) during the Congress in Antalya, Turkey, on Nov. 5-7.

Ita received 22 votes in the election and will join the Asian Gymnastics Union Council with two new members from Kuwait and the Philippines and two incumbent members from Thailand and Uzbekistan.

"We hope by having a representative in FIG, we can build better communication with the international federation as well as other countries to improve Indonesian gymnastics performance," she said.

In the election, Morinari Watanabe was re-elected as FIG President for a three-year term from 2022 to 2024. He received 81 votes against 47 for the other candidate, Farid Gayibov of Azerbaijan.
