New honour for Christian

Wednesday 9 January 2013

Cardiff's Christian Malcolm will serve a four year term on the British Olympic Association's Athletes’ Commission after being elected from a group of 21 candidates voted for by Olympians who have competed at a summer or winter Games since Sydney 2000. Upon hearing of his election, Christian said, “It’s an honour to be a part of the BOA Athletes' Commission and I believe that we have a fantastic opportunity to help shape the way that the BOA looks following the most amazing year of Sport Great Britain has ever seen. I’m excited about meeting with the other members of the Commission and helping to make a positive difference to something that I am very passionate about, which includes ensuring that the interest of the athletes remains at the forefront of the organisation's aims and objectives.”

The Commission is a 14 person advisory group first formed in July 2010 to ensure that the athletes' viewpoint and interests are at the heart of everything the BOA does. The members are made up of a mixture of past and present summer and winter Olympians and the group meets every two months.

Malcolm, a three-time Olympian, will be joined by Olympic rowing gold medallist Katherine Grainger, hockey bronze medallist Kate Walsh, former-rower James Cracknell, former-modern pentathlete Heather Fell and Athens 2004 diving silver medallist Leon Taylor. The former European and Commonwealth 200m silver medallist is looking forward to playing a part in way that the BOA is shaped for the future.

Congratulations Christian.
