Seb Coe is set to be re-elected as president of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) after the former London 2012 chief was confirmed as the only candidate for the role.

Coe, who has held the role since 2015, is expected to be named president for a further four-year term at the IAAF Congress on 25 September 2019.

While Coe's nomination will be unopposed, there will, however, be fierce competition for a number of other positions on the IAAF Council.

The IAAF published a list of 45 candidates who have put themselves forward for election to the remaining 17 positions on the council – the international federation's governing board.

The 18 roles on the council are broken down into one president, four vice presidents – at least one of which will be female - and 13 Individual members.

In recent years, there has been a focus on increasing the gender balance on the council, which has seen a 10 per cent increase in female candidates.

The IAAF has set itself a timetable of ensuring it has an equal balance of male and female Council Members by 2027.

In the 2019 elections at least seven of the elected members, including one of the Athletes’ Commission representative, will be female, representing just under 30 per cent.

At the next elections in 2023, 40 per cent of Council will be represented by female members and in 2027 half the Council members will be female.

“We have a strong list of candidates from 44 countries applying for IAAF Council positions which demonstrates the global strength of our sport,” said Coe.

“I am particularly pleased that almost 40 per cent of the Individual Candidates are female."
