LONDON (AP) The chief organizer of the 2017 world track and field championships resigned Tuesday, the third member of the local organizing committee to quit in the past week.

Sally Bolton, managing director of the committee, is leaving for ''personal reasons,'' U.K. Athletics said.

Bolton did not expand on the reasons, only saying she is ''incredibly proud of the work that has been completed in achieving the early milestones that lay the foundations for the events success.''

Board members Heather Hancock and Martin Stewart left their positions last week.

The resignations come amid a reported power struggle with the chairman of the board, Ed Warner.

London won the bid to stage the championships in a 2011 vote. The event will be held at the Olympic Stadium.
