Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election
I’m Kozhenkova Anastasiia, born on January 19, 1986 in Kovel city, Ukraine. I studied at school # 11 there. I had been practicing different sports such as volleyball, basketball, swimming and judo. At the age of 13 I entered Kyiv Sport Academy and studied there for 4 years on a rowing course. After graduating from Kyiv Sport Academy I entered the National University of Physical Education and Sport of Ukraine in 2004 and finished it in 2008. In 2017 I successfully defended a thesis on specialty Olympic and Professional Sport.
My sports career:
- 2004 Seville World Rowing Junior Championships (W4X) – Silver medal
- 2009 Poznan World Rowing Championships (W4X) – Gold medal
- 2010 World Rowing Championships – Silver medal
- 2011 European Championships – Gold medal
- 2012 Olympic Games – Gold medal
- 2016 Olympic Games – 4th place
I would like to contribute to the work of the IOC Athletes’ Commission with my personal experience. I would be happy to collaborate with world famous athletes and together contribute to our common goal – to ensure the rights of the athletes in the world.
