Simons Set to Resume CGF Regional Vice-President Role

Vice-presidents Chris Jenkins of Wales and Kereyn Smith of New Zealand are the two candidates to succeed Dame Louise Martin as Commonwealth Games Federation President at this year's crucial General Assembly in Singapore, it was announced today.

The contest for the leadership is set to decide the future of a multi-sport event that has been part of the sporting landscape since the inaugural British Empire Games in Hamilton in 1930, but has been left without a clear solution to Victoria in Australia withdrawing from staging the 2026 edition, although an update has been promised at the General Assembly and officials insist a replacement can be found.

Meanwhile, four of the Regional Vice-Presidential roles are set to be decided unopposed.

Botswana's Botsang Tshenyego for Africa, Bermuda's Judy Simons for the Americas, the British Virgin Islands' Ephraim Penn for the Caribbean, and Australia's Craig Philips for Oceania are the only candidates.
