Sports Director Kelly Fairweather leaves IOC
19 Jun 2007 07:07

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced that Sports Director Kelly Fairweather will leave the IOC at the end of July 2007. Fairweather decided to return to his native country South Africa to head the ‘Sport Performance Institute’ at Stellenbosch University.

‘It was not an easy decision to leave the IOC’, Fairweather said. ‘In life, there are always opportunities along the way that you sometimes have to grasp.’

The FIH had an excellent relationship with Fairweather, a former high level hockey player and hockey coach. The ‘hockey family’ wishes him good luck in his new job in which he hopefully will stay involved in hockey. Stellenbosch University is one of the key hockey centers in South Africa.
