The International School Sport Federation is deeply saddened about the sudden loss of its America President and member of the Executive Committee, the American Roger J. Goudy.
Roger J. Goudy was elected in June 2019 within the highest ISF body. He was eager to share with ISF colleagues from all over the world his more than forty years experience with sport organisations in the USA. He corresponded perfectly to the profile of someone able to strongly contribute to the development of the ISF, based on his in-depth experience in education and sport at national and international levels.
He spent most of his professional career in schools combining it with his involvement in sport activities on a voluntary basis until his election in 2014 as full time President and CEO of the Amateur Athletic Union of the United States.
President Petrynka, who was welcomed by Mr. Goudy last January in his town Orlando, Florida, declared “I am shocked. It is a tremendous loss for ISF. Mr Goudy succeeded in a short period of time to become well respected by all his colleagues. He had many projects for the expansion of ISF values in the Americas and in the USA”.
