Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election
I would like to become a member of the IOC Athletes’ Commission in order to better understand the Olympic Movement, and its roles and activities, with the aim of explaining its existence to athletes in a better way. In addition, becoming a member would allow me to defend the rights of the athletes, lead them, support them, advise them, coach them and educate them to help them integrate into any environment during and after their career.
All of this must be done in line with the vision and mission of the IOC Athletes’ Commission.
With the experience I have acquired in my 19 years in athletics, I think I understand all of the ins and outs of the world of sport. I will be up to the task of guiding my peers, who – like me – dream of being among the best in the world, and perhaps winning an Olympic medal. So place your trust in me – I will be at your service.

BECOMING A MEMBER WILL ALLOW ME TO DEFEND ATHLETES’ RIGHTS AND STEER THEM IN DECISION-MAKING
