Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election

I am an Olympian, a sports fan, a passionate believer in the Olympic Movement and a double Olympic champion.

I know the incredible inspirational effect the Games hold: For competing athletes. For those watching and supporting. And especially for young people experiencing the magic of the Games for the first time, as I did in 1996.

As a schoolboy, I vividly remember being told that London had won the 2012 Games. I was inspired and motivated by the idea that I could, one day, compete on the greatest stage on Earth in front of family, friends and fans. This memory has never left me. The opportunity to be able to contribute to the Olympic Movement and to represent and support my fellow athletes excites me greatly.

Athletes must be at the centre of the Movement. I will listen to concerns on an individual level and represent the views of the whole community on important issues such as equality and fairness in sport, the fight for clean sport and supporting athletes to achieve and develop outside of their career.

My belief is that the Olympics creates not only great athletes, but great people.
