CONSUDATLE( Spanish: Confederación Sudamericana de Atletismo; South American Athletics Confederation) is the continental confederation governing body of athletics for national governing bodies and multi-national federations within South America. CONSUDATLE is one of six area associations of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF). CONSUDATLE was founded on May 24, 1918, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.[1] Therefore, the ConSudAtle claims to be the oldest athletics area federation of the world. The founder members were Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay. Successively, the other nations joined: Brazil in 1922, Ecuador and Perú in 1925, Bolivia in 1930, and Colombia in 1937. Venezuela and Paraguay followed later, and Panamá, Guyana and Surinam joined within the last decades.[1]


The current president Roberto Gesta de Melo was re-elected in 2010 for the period 2011-2015 in Rio de Janeiro.[2][3] Former presidents can be found here.[1]
