World Athletics is deeply saddened to hear that Cesar Moreno Bravo, a World Athletics Council Member from 1991 to 2011 and former President of the Mexican athletics federation, died on Sunday (12) at the age of 88.
A passionate race walking advocate, Moreno Bravo dedicated his life to athletics. Director for the sport at the Mexico City Olympic Games in 1968, he went on to become Technical Delegate at numerous World Athletics Series events, was twice a member of the Technical Committee and was an honorary life member of World Masters Athletics.
“Cesar was a seasoned IAAF Council Member by the time I joined the Council in 2003,” said World Athletics President Sebastian Coe. “I will always be grateful for his kindness to me as a rookie. His views were always pertinent, and he was fiercely protective of those values he felt the sport should be based on.
“Long after leaving the Council, he still worked hard for the sport he loved and I learned that just a few weeks ago he was on a Zoom call with our HQ road running team about the need for more World Athletics accredited course measurers in Mexico, a country with over 1000 FMAA sanctioned road races. He is also the inspiration behind the course measurement seminar we will be holding later this year.”
