Elected to the IOC AC
Why did I want to be a member of the IOC Athletes’ Commission?

I wanted to be in the IOC Athletes’ Commission because I believe in the power of high performance sport. I have seen the positive impact and the unique ability for sport to bring people and countries together.

The Olympic Games are all about the athletes and without them they simply wouldn’t exist. It is an honour to represent the athletes’ voice in the Olympic Movement.

What do the Olympic Games mean to me?

The Olympic Games are the best event in the world. Not only in a sporting sense, but the Games are also about the foundations we build, the energy we create and the legacy we leave. It is an unparalleled experience that can permeate your life and provide you with the opportunity to influence and impact others.

Looking back at my long career, the thing I’m most proud of are the gold medal games in all the Olympic Games.
