ANOC Athletes’ Commission meets at ANOC headquarters
The ANOC Athletes’ Commission became the latest Commission to meet in Lausanne as they convened at the ANOC headquarters on Monday 15 April.
The meeting was the first held under the leadership of Commission Chair Karo Lelai, and followed the IOC International Athletes’ Forum which members of the ANOC Athletes’ Commission attended.
During the meeting, reports and updates from each of the Continental Athletes’ Commissions were given. There was a review of the ANOC Athletes’ Commission Toolkit as well as how the Continental Association could collaborate with the IOC Athletes’ Commission to support the implementation of the Athletes’ Rights and Responsibilities Declaration.
Lelai said: ‘It was great to meet at the ANOC office for my first meeting as Chair and we are all excited about the support we , as an Athletes’ Commission, can offer to ANOC and the NOC Athletes’ Commission. Being at the IOC’s Athletes’ Forum demonstrated how vital the role of athletes’ voices is for the Olympic Movement and there is a real opportunity for collaboration across all athletes’ commissions.’
