Krystel SANEH

Krystel SANEH, IYF PresidentMs. Krystel SANEH, Born on 11 June 1994 in Lebanon. Athlete since 2006 (100m Hurdles-Long Jump). Sport has always been a part of her life. Not only as an athlete, but also as an activist in the sports society. It brought her many opportunities. It also influenced her personality by giving her more self-confidence.

As a young professional with an international experience, Ms. Krystel works to meet these growing mandates and expectations, and she have engaged in the most sweeping reform effort in the history of the Federation.  The very scope of the reform has taxed the attention and energies of both international delegations, operating commissions and the Secretariat. She calls for special emphasis will be placed on the promotion of technical and managerial excellence.
