Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election

Athletes are the foundation of the Olympic Movement; without athletes, the Olympics would cease to exist. Unfortunately, there is often tension between the Organising Committees and athletes, although no doubt each party is trying to do what is best for the Olympic Movement.

I currently sit on the Australian Olympic Committee’s Athletes’ Commission and have done for the past four years. During that time, I learned a great deal about corporate governance, operations and logistics. I have also developed a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Olympic Movement, the way it operates and how it is funded and supported. But most notably, I have come to recognise how important it is, not only in Australia, but on a global scale.

I believe that the Olympic ideals which are expressed through athletes need to be protected and nurtured for future generations.

If I am elected to the IOC Athletes’ Commission, I will endeavour to listen to my peers’ concerns and represent them to the best of my ability and be guided by the recently adopted Athletes’ Rights and Responsibilities Declaration.
