Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election

As an elite Athlete and throughout my term as a member of the IAAF Athletes Commission (2015-2019), I have gone through ups and downs, and discovered that success can only be achieved by committing yourself fully to the task ahead and only then, the desired result could be achieved.

Educating young athletes and elite ones alike on matters related to sport, culture, anti-doping and similar topics would assist in building a more complete sportsperson. Supporting the underprivileged athletes would ensure inclusion of all and provide a sense of equality across all society levels. My commitment, if elected, is to play an active role on this front.

If elected to the IOC Athletes’ Commission, I would work hard to share the lessons of my experience as an elite athlete. I would also commit to promote fair sport practice from grassroots to elite levels and protect clean athletes across all sports and to be a voice for the quiet, unheard and underprivileged athletes within the Olympic Movement.

I AM A CANDIDATE TO REPRESENT AND PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR ALL ATHLETES, ESPECIALLY THE UNDERPRIVILEGED

MUTAZ AISSA BARSHAM

This is our time. This is the right time to get the strong and united collective voice to represent the athletes.
I'd love the athletes of the world to know a little bit more about the programmes that the IOC has to offer – there's some really terrific advice and programmes that exist on Athlete365.
My advice would be to get in touch with us with every problem you want to raise. We are the voice of the athletes, and we can bring up these issues and vocalise them wherever we can
