Around 60 Holy See employees have joined the Vatican’s athletics team.

About 60 Holy See runners – Swiss Guards, priests, nuns, pharmacists and a 62-year-old professor who works in the Vatican’s Apostolic Library – are the first accredited members of Vatican Athletics.

Because of the agreement with Coni, the team are now a part of the Italian track association and are looking to join the International Association of Athletics Federations.
