Jean-Michel Cleroy re-elected for second term as French federation president

Jean-Michel Cleroy has been re-elected for a second four-year term as president of the French archery federation after winning 56.45% of a vote to challenger Thomas Naglieri’s 43.56%.

Cleroy, who is also a member of World Archery’s executive board, ran on a manifest of “building the club of tomorrow together”. The programme was heavily geared towards maximising the opportunity of the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris and engaging youth.

“From tomorrow, we will continue our commitment to support clubs in exiting this pandemic,” he said in his speech after the result was announced. He also highlighted the upcoming three-year residency of a stage of the Hyundai Archery World Cup in the French capital and the importance of supporting the country’s elite athletes.

The election took place during the federation’s remote general assembly on 12 December 2020. Some 145 delegates from regional and departmental committees representing 10,215 individual ballots took part in the vote.
Despite losing the election, Naglieri will join the federation’s board of directors.

Other notable members of the board for Cleroy’s second term include multiple world champion Catherine Pellen, World Archery para committee chair Dominique Ohlmann and international judge Christophe Pezet.
