We heard that all the records set by Champville athletes at Sports City on the last meeting organized by Inter-Lebanon and Champville clubs, have been denied by the Lebanese Athletics Federation due to the fact that Elie Saade, the head coach at Champille club, was the only member of the LAF present, even though Fady Saleme, another member of the LAF, was also present that day and Elie Saade was there as a representative of the Federation. This means that the 2 records set by Sara-Joe Kortbawi and the 60m records set by Lea Obeid and Nour Mouaness will not be registered.
To be sure that this information is true, we contacted Elie Saade who denied this story and said that the records aren't confirmed YET, simply because he has the results and for personal reasons couldn't attend the meeting of the LAF.
We hope that these young athletes keep what's rightfully theirs. Athletes should never be the victims of misunderstandings and political problems.
