The Ligue d'Athlétisme de la Guyane (LAG) is the governing body for the sport of athletics in French Guiana. Last president was Daniel Lapompe-Paironne.[1] He was replaced by Gaëtan Tariaffe.[2]

As LAG is part of the Fédération française d'athlétisme, athletes from French Guiana normally participate internationally for France, e.g., in European Athletics Championships as organized by the EAA. On the other hand, French Guiana as a French overseas department is part of the Caribbean. As an observer member of CACAC, French Guiana is invited to participate at the championships, and also at the CARIFTA Games.
