Four Candidates Named to the Endurance Chef D' Equipe Short List


Lexington, KY - The USEF High Performance Endurance Committee has named four candidates to the Endurance Chef d'Equipe Short List. During this extensive process, the USEF received 14 applications from three different nations. The Chef d' Equipe Search Committee interviewed six applicants in April.

Prior to these interviews, athletes were given the opportunity to provide questions to the Search Committee to be included. Following the interviews, Joe Mattingley presented the Search Committee's rating of all 14 candidates to the USEF Eligible Athlete Committee who then made their recommendations to the Endurance High Performance Committee.Taking into account the ratings of the candidates and the recommendations of the Athlete Committee, the Endurance High Performance Committee established the following to the short list: Mark Dial (USA); Dr. Flavia Ferraro (BRA); Emmett Ross (USA); and Dr. Michele Roush (USA).
