After 4 years serving for Clean Sports Medha Goodary leaves the JJIF board.
Medha Goodary, who has served on the board of directors for the Ju-Jitsu International Federation (JJIF) since 2018, has resigned from her position. Goodary, who is originally from Mauritius, has taken a new job in her home country and will no longer be able to fulfill her duties as a board member. In her time on the board, she has helped to grow the sport both in Mauritius and internationally, and she will be sorely missed.
Goodary was one of the first women to be elected to the JJIF board, and she has been a strong advocate for fair play in the sport of Ju-Jitsu.
Medha was the heart of the Doping Free department and she was responsible for giving legal support and guidance. She was also responsible for handling the compliance questions with WADA. It will be very difficult to substitute her and the JJIF board was very happy with her promise to continue working for clean sport.
The JJIF expresses its sincere thanks to Medha Goodary.
“It has been a great journey and I am proud to have been part of it. I thank you and all the board members and JJIF Team who have placed their trust in me.
Subject to there being no objection, I shall continue to be part of the Doping Free Unit to assist Nuvin in anti doping matters as far as I can. We shall therefore continue our collaboration with this respect.”
