Saudi Arabia's Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed has been appointed to the board of directors at the US-based International Functional Fitness Federation (iF3), the organization announced on Tuesday.

Prince Khaled, who leads the Saudi Sports for All Federation, is known for his athletic dedication. The SFA became an iF3 member last month.

In addition to his new role, Prince Khaled holds positions on the boards of the Saudi Olympic and Paralympic Committee and the Saudi Universities Sports Federation.

He emphasizes the importance of physical activity and sports in his everyday life, having discovered functional fitness in 2016.

He attributes his fitness regimen to maintaining his physical and mental well-being.

It also supports his various athletic pursuits, which include obstacle and endurance challenges, golf, tennis, and running.

Prince Khaled is also a member of the Saudi Arabian Health in All Policies committee, which ensures that health and wellness considerations are integrated into all national policies.

Expressing his enthusiasm for joining the iF3 board, Prince Khaled stated that he is eager to get started.

"I hope to contribute to the iF3's goals of raising awareness, increasing participation, and promoting functional fitness worldwide, and to build on the board's successful efforts to establish a global presence," he said.

iF3 President Gretchen Kittelberger expressed her delight at Prince Khaled's appointment.

"We are excited to welcome Prince Khaled to the iF3 board of directors," she said.

"His passion and understanding of the sport, combined with his experience in sports governance and business acumen, make him a valuable addition to iF3.

We are confident he will have a significant impact on the iF3 board and help us advance our sport to new heights."
