Why I am running in the IOC Athletes’ Commission election

I have been involved at many levels of sport in my country and internationally, I see an ever-evolving inclusion of athletes to the vital decision-making bodies from the smallest of countries to the big.

I want to share my experiences from my small region, the adversity we face to strive for excellence. I want to continue to voice the athletes from the non-developed countries, to listen and include them in the decision-making process.

I have experienced the best in my sport, I have experienced many issues faced by our athletes and I have experienced the many issues in our region through our continental Games. I am giving back to sport, which has taught me life experiences and values, to give other athletes an opportunity to represent their country as the best in their own sport and to play an important role in sustainable development in our region.

I WANT TO BE THE VOICE FOR THE MANY SMALL REGIONS THAT FACE EVERYDAY ADVERSITY TO BE THE POSITIVE CHANGE THAT IS NEEDED IN THIS WORLD
