IPC Appoints New Snow Sports Manager16 Aug 2011
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is proud to announce Dimitrije Lazarovski as its new Snow Sports Manager, responsible for overseeing Alpine Skiing, Cross-Country Skiing and Biathlon.
Based at the IPC headquarters in Bonn, Germany, Lazarovski’s duties will include managing and maintaining the rules and competitions for his respective sports, providing services and support to the relevant IPC Sport Technical Committees and overseeing the implementation process of a corporate plan and budget for his three sports.
Alpine Skiing, Cross-Country Skiing and Biathlon are all a part of the Paralympic Games programme and will be featured at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games.
“Dimitrije will be a great addition to the IPC Management Team and will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to a winter sports department that is thriving with just less than three years to go until the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Games,” IPC CEO Xavier Gonzalez said.
Prior to joining the IPC, Lazarovski acted as Secretary General for the Ski Federation of Serbia for six years and was the leader of a youth development ski program there.
“The possibility of being in the field and allowing competitors to achieve their highest goals push me further in my daily work,” Lazarovski said.
Lazarovski is fluent in English and Serbian and well on his way to becoming fluent in German. He recently received his master’s degree in risk management from the University of Belgrade.
