Following the appointment of the new FIH Athletes Committee, FIH President Tayyab Ikram said: “Athletes have always been at the centre of all sporting endeavours of the FIH. When FIH launched its new “Empowerment and Engagement” strategy, the “athletes first” approach was enshrined in its core, further showcasing our commitment towards the welfare and well-being of hockey players worldwide. The Athletes Committee will play a crucial role in the execution of this vision and I welcome all our hockey athletes that have been appointed to the committee. I look forward to working closely with all of you to safeguard the present and improve the future, as we bring the joy of hockey to everyone around the world.”

Newly appointed co-chair PR Sreejesh said: “Being part of the athletic committee itself is a great honour for me. Getting in as the co-chair is an added responsibility. I’m looking forward to working with Camila, and all the athletic committee members for the betterment of hockey players around the globe.”

Co-chair Camila Caram added: “Very happy and honoured that my fellow colleagues voted me as Co-chair. I will work hard to be the voice of the athletes and have always the channels open for communication. I sincerely thank Rogier for everything he did for the athletes during these past years.
