The FISpT is an International Olympic Committee (IOC) recognized sports federation that aims to further develop and promote the ideals of “sport for all” – that sport is a basic human right that enables people to live more fulfilling lives – and the values of universality, tolerance, and ethics. Rosandich has been involved as a member of FISpT for nearly two decades.

“I was both honored and humbled with the nomination and subsequent vote”, said Rosandich. “Having been involved with international sport generally and the concept of sports for all specifically, I’m looking forward to my continued service with FISpT. There is much to do coming out of the hiatus in activities over the past year owing to the pandemic.”
