The Federación Salvadoreña de Atletismo (FSA; Salvadorian Athletics Federation) is the governing body for the sport of athletics in El Salvador.[1]


El Salvadorian athletes participated already at the 1st Central American and Caribbean Games in 1926 in Ciudad de México. In 1935, the Estadio Nacional De la Flor Blanca was inaugurated to host the 3rd Central American and Caribbean Games.[2] FSA was founded only in 1943.[3] Another source reports the foundation not before 1946/1947.[2]

Former president was José Benjamín Ruiz. After more than twenty years in office, he was replaced by odontologist and ex pole-vaulter Juan Carlos Ramírez in January 2013.[4] He was re-elected in December 2013, but the Olympic Committee of El Salvador did not recognise the result.[5] Therefore, the acknowledgement of the IAAF is still pending.[6]
