The move presented by IAAF President Sebastian Coe, in a time for change document crafted to move the scandal-hit organisation away from its badly tainted reputation and recover trust and credibility.

Coe’s plan included operational changes such as greater gender balance and influence to athletes an independent anti-doping management system increased commercial value and a wider distribution of power.

One hundred and eighty-two members voted in favour of the proposals.

Sebastian Coe, IAAF President says, “We now have structures, we now have frameworks and foundations that will create a safety net and that safety net has also been responsive to cultural shifts and cultural changes, but it is a good day and there is now a whole heap of new work to do to make sure that we drive on to a far better future.”

The constitutional changes will be delivered in two stages, January 1st 2017 and January 1st 2019.
