UWW Appoints Carlos Roy as Secretary General

By United World Wrestling Press

CORSIER-SUR-VEVEY, Switzerland (January 21) -- United World Wrestling announced a significant change during a quarterly Bureau Meeting as Carlos ROY was appointed as the Secretary-General. The change is effective immediately.

The University of Lausanne graduate joined UWW in 2009. He worked closely with the previous Secretary-General on various aspects of the federation’s governance, with the responsibility of the board and Congress meetings, regulatory and institutional relations with member federations, as well as the coordination of the continental councils and the Commissions’ work.

"Carlos has served UWW with the utmost integrity and we congratulate him for the new role," Nenad LALOVIC, UWW President, said. "He has vast experience in governance, administration and international sports. I am confident that he will continue to help our sport grow with the new responsibility."

He was also in charge of the anti-doping program until UWW signed an agreement with the ITA in 2019 for the management of the anti-doping activities. He has been instrumental in organizing wrestling at the three Olympics -- London 2012, Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020.

“I am honoured and grateful to the President and the Board for their confidence," Roy said. "I look forward to continuing the work of constant improvement of our sport and organization, together with my very talented colleagues."

Roy assumes the role after the resignation of Michel DUSSON who served UWW for over 35 years. His contribution to wrestling has been immense.
