International Rowing Federation

World Rowing, formally the World Rowing Federation is the governing body for international rowing. Its current president is Jean-Christophe Rolland who succeeded Denis Oswald at a ceremony held in Lucerne in July 2014; the World Rowing Cup, World Rowing Championships, other such competitions are overseen by this organization. It was founded by rowing representatives from France, Belgium and Italy on 25 June 1892 in Turin in response to the growing popularity of the sport of rowing, the consequent need for uniformity of regulations over such matters as race lengths, boat composition, weight classes. At the time, betting on rowing was popular, the rowers or coaches were themselves taking bets. Amateur status was unknown in the sport, a state of affairs which can lead to corruption, such as thrown races; the first regatta organised by the newly formed FISA was the European Rowing Championships and was held in 1893 in Orta, Italy. It only had 10 entries in no professional participants. By 1925, the 27th European Championships, held in Prague, included 24 entries in 10 different events.

FISA established its headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1922. FISA was the first international sports federation, it has been on the Olympic program since the 1896 Summer Olympics in Athens.. Each country that participates in rowing has a federation or governing body which belongs to the FISA Congress; these federations have overall control of. FISA decided in 1955 that only a united German team could compete at international rowing championships; this required that East and West Germany held selection trials, with the winning country for each boat class choosing the rowers who would compete at the championships. Over the years, the relationship between the two German countries deteriorated, East Germany made seven application to FISA congresses to be recognised as a separate and independent country. On the seventh occasion, there was insufficient time to discuss the issue at the congress held in Duisburg just prior to the men's competition of the 1965 European Rowing Championships. FISA president Thomas Keller stated that an extraordinary congress were to be held in November in Vienna that would discuss the issue, that he saw no problem with solving the problems.

In October 1965, the International Olympic Committee decided that East Germany was to have its own team at future Olympic Games. At the FISA congress in November 1965, the East German application found forty-six votes of support, four abstentions, no votes of disapproval. At the same congress, Keller's proposal to not play national anthems or raise flags during medal ceremonies was approved; these changes first applied at the European Championships in August 1966 and the World Championships two weeks in September. FISA is led by a president; the following list gives presidents since 1924: 1924–1926 Eugène Baud, Switzerland 1926–1949 Rico Fioroni, Switzerland 1949–1958 Gaston Mullegg, Switzerland 1958–1989 Thomas Keller, Switzerland 1989–2014 Denis Oswald, Switzerland 2014–present Jean-Christophe Rolland, France At the 2017 Ordinary Congress FISA admitted its 152nd & 153rd members.

Philip John Stigant

Philip John Stigant was an influential member of the Parliament of the Cape of Good Hope and a three-time Mayor of the City of Cape Town. In his youth, Stigant served in the frontier wars, he was an undertaker by profession, a reactionary in politics. Stigant represented Cape Town in the Cape Parliament, where he was a fierce conservative - opposing any further democratic independence from Britain, his conservative party was led by fellow MPs such as Manuel, Clough and John X Merriman. This party fought against the rising "responsible government" party which advocated greater local democracy and independence from the British Colonial Office. In 1871 the "responsibles" triumphed and Stigant spend much of the rest of the decade more involved in local council elections. In the late 1870s, when Governor Bartle Frere was working to impose a system of British Confederation on southern Africa, Stigant was one of the MPs who warned Frere against forcibly disarming the Cape's Black African citizens; as a soldier, Stigant saw himself as qualified to advise on such policies.

He warned against the Confederation plan stating that the Black African nations were aware that it was a plan to encircle and annex their remaining lands. He predicted that the slow-moving imperial troop columns would perform disastrously in the rough African terrain. Altogether, in spite of being a conservative imperialist himself, he joined a large group of local leaders who implored Frere to rethink his policies. Stigant went on to become Mayor of Cape Town on three separate occasions; as a Councillor, he aligned himself with the so-called "Clean Party" in local politics. The party that called itself the "Clean Party", was comprised predominantly of recent immigrant English merchants and businessmen, who favoured a cleaner city with greater infrastructure to encourage investment, they had the support of the Cape Lantern newspapers. They opposed the party of the ratepayers association, which they dubbed the "Dirty Party", comprised predominantly of Malay and Afrikaner residents and both small & large property owners.

They were less afraid of the dirty streets than of being pushed out of areas of the city by the higher rates which would be needed in order to pay for the proposed new infrastructure. In early 1879 he was involved in a legal case with the Mayor at the time due to his accusation of electoral fraud against the Mayor, his subsequent being sued for libel. In his last term as Mayor, he was involved in a public debate with Abdol Burns, the representative of the city's Muslim Malay voters, regarding the city's smallpox control policies, which contravened Muslim practices. After attempting to persuade Burns to conform to the citywide policies, Stigant relented, was seen as having lost the debate. Stigant married Mary Ann King, had one daughter, Florence
