About

IOC Athletes' Commission Strategy

As elected athlete representatives in the Olympic Movement, we aim to lead by example and provide a guiding reference for other ACs. To do this successfully, we must be All In.

Launched in 2017, our Strategy has been a collective effort, which involved AC members from Continental Associations, International Federations and many other stakeholders within the Olympic Movement.
