The Federation had earlier invited NSAs to nominate candidates from their respective sports to fill the posts in the SF&OC Athletes Committee. Four qualified nominations were received for the Olympic Games sports category while no nomination was received for the Asian Games sports category, the two posts of which will be left vacant.
Since the number of nominations exceeds the number of posts in the Olympic Games sports category, an election was held between 29 August to 12 September 2016. A total of 60 voting forms have been received, of which 52 were valid and 8 were invalid. The results are as follows:
Candidates No. of votes received
Ms. LAM Samantha 8
* Mr. LEE Chi Wo, Daniel 42
* Ms. LEE Ka Man, Carmen 30
* Ms. YIP Pui Yin 27
The Federation declared that the three candidates labelled with “*” are elected through receiving the highest number of votes. Their tenure will start from the conclusion of the 371st Council Meeting until the 67th Annual General Meeting to be held in 2018.
The full membership of the Athletes Committee for the term 2016-2018 is as follows:
Nominated by SF&OC:
Mr. CHAN King Yin
Mr. WONG Kam Po
Ms. Stephanie AU
Mr. LI Ching
Nominated by NSAs:
Mr. LEE Chi Wo, Daniel
Ms. LEE Ka Man, Carmen
Ms. YIP Pui Yin
Mr. Ronnie WONG (member of Olympic Council of Asia Athletes’ Committee who represents Hong Kong)
The Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson will be elected by Athletes Committee Members among themselves at the first meeting.
The Federation is satisfied with the overall electoral arrangements and would like to thank NSAs, voters and candidates for their co-operation, which enabled the election to be conducted in an open and fair manner.
