HistoryEdit

FDPA was founded on November 22, 1918 as Federación Atlética Peruana. First president was Alfredo Benavides Canseco.[1][2][3] It joined CONSUDATLE in 1925, and Perú's first international appearance was at the IV South American Championships in Montevideo, Uruguay. Later that year, the Peruvian Olympic Committee (Comité Olímpico Peruano) installed a commission for the integration of the sport of athletics. The process resulted in the foundation of the Federación Peruana de Atletismo on February 15, 1927, with president Pedro Villanueva.[2]

After the resignation of Enrique Cusicanqui in 2011, former vice-president Jorge Julián came into office.[4][5] In December 2012, Miguel Ignacio Mendo was elected president for the period 2013-2016.[6][7] However, the result was not recognized, and a new election was scheduled,[8] where ex-sprinter Óscar Fernández was nominated and confirmed as new president.[9][10][11]
