10,000 meters Olympic Gold Medalist Derartu Tulu has been elected as vice-president of East Africa Athletics Region. The Congress that elected Derartu held its meeting at Capital Hotel, in Addis Ababa this week.

She is also elected as Board Member of African Athletics Confederation (CAA), according to an update from Ethiopian Athletics Federation.

In mid-November 2018, Derartu was named as interim president of Ethiopian Athletics Federation (EAF) following an unexpected resignation of Haile Gebreselassie.
