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

Being the sole rider representative on the UCI BMX Commission for a whole Olympic cycle was an awesome experience, and I wanted to take this a step further and join the IOC Athletes’ Commission.

I enjoy the challenges and challenging others when it comes to finding solutions and deciding on the direction of the sport. I want to represent the voices of the athletes and take ideas from all around New Zealand and Oceania to grow the impact of the Olympic Games and what they can achieve.

Adversity. Progress.



Role in the AC

The Olympic Movement is about having the courage to be the best version of yourself. It’s a privilege to represent the athlete voice, and I’m focused on improving the way we interact with as many athletes as possible.

Getting to know
Sarah Walker
This is our time. This is the right time to get the strong and united collective voice to represent the athletes.
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
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.

Our mission is simple, to make Athletes’ lives better and continually grow the world’s biggest community of elite and Olympic level Athletes.
