The FEI has appointed Polish O-judge Wojciech Markoswki has been officially appointed Technical Delegate for the 2012 Olympic Games in Greenwich.
"Of course I am looking forward to the job," Markowski told Eurodressage. "I have already had one meeting with the Swiss timing company on the software which we will be using during the Olympics. I am going to the Olympic test event at beginning of July in London, where they will be hosting eventing and dressage."
