Hein Verbruggen, vice-president of the UCI, has been elected as the General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF) president, the UCI has announced. Verbruggen was elected for the roll at a meeting last month held in Beijing, which will host next year's Olympic Games.

The organisation "represents the sole forum bringing together the whole of sports organizations once a year to exchange viewpoints on themes of common interest," according to its website.

Verbruggen, who is also an International Olympic Committee member, will complete a four year term at the helm of the organisation, which includes 104 international sports federations and organizations.
