Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election

Being an Olympian is not just about training hard, breaking barriers, defying science and being the best in the world, but it’s also about the impact, inspiration, love and values that you can spread across the world. I have had the privilege and blessing to serve others that find themselves in need and who live in extreme poverty from a very young age through my parents’ non-profit organization in the country of Guatemala. My passion has always been to help, serve and inspire those around me. I have had so many doors and opportunities open in my life that I have chosen to take advantage of and use it for the good of those around me. The opportunity to become part of the IOC Athletes’ Commission has not just been an honor for me to apply, but bring a challenge in my life that I desire to pursue with passion, excellence, honesty and integrity. Being part of the IOC Athletes’ Commission and a member of the IOC gives me the chance to continue doing what makes me passionate, and that is to help everyone and anyone who has the desire to make a change in this world and in their own lives.

THE ATHLETES’ VOICE IS OUR BIGGEST ASSET TO IMPROVE THE OLYMPIC MOVEMENT AND MAKE THE WORLD OF SPORT A BETTER PLACE

CHARLES FERNANDEZ

At Athlete365 we listen to the collective voice of athlete representatives. We truly believe that athletes are at the heart of the Olympic Movement and are key to shaping the future of world sport. Join us today!
Athlete365 is a very good opportunity for the athletes coming from African countries and the smaller countries who don't have a really strong voice. You will feel like you are one family with us.
This is our time. This is the right time to get the strong and united collective voice to represent the athletes.
Join the community
Our mission is simple, to make Athletes’ lives better and continually grow the world’s biggest community of elite and Olympic level Athletes.
