Nassau (Bahamas), Jan 12 (IANS/CMC) Close to 1,000 volunteers are needed for the inaugural International Associations of Athletic Federations (IAAF) World Relay Championships scheduled for May 24-25 in the Bahamas.

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the World Relays is also looking for people to work in the special events and guest services divisions who will assist with the team accommodations, logistics inclusive of airport pick-ups and drop offs, transportation and accreditation.

Other areas where volunteers are needed are for the start of competition, assisting with medical and anti-doping, corporate services, sponsorship and promotion, communications, event media services, security, stadium venue and technology.

“The volunteer section is not open as yet but persons who are willing to assist in any of the areas are asked to contact us via e-mail for more information,” said Haven.

In addition to the volunteers, 100 persons are listed as part of the LOC’s team.
