QLD Olympic Council

19th April 2013

My nomination was successful in being elected to the Queensland Olympic Council (QOC) Executive Board and we had our first board meeting last week… I am most honoured and excited to continue to be involved in the Olympic movement!

I join two fellow athletes on the board in Toby Jenkins (Water Polo, Athens 2004) and Julie McDondald (Swimming, Seoul 1998) led by our newly elected president, Natalie Cook (Beach Volleyball, Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, London 2012 London).

The QOC’s aim is to project the AOC’s commitment to spread and maintain the ideals of Olympism and the Olympic Movement through education and the development of Queensland based Australian athletes, encouraging both high performance sport and sport for all.

The QOC’s main objective is to provide both Queensland and Australian athletes, with the best possible opportunity to reach their highest potential and to achieve the ultimate goal of representing Australia with distinction at the Olympic Games.

I am passionate about sport and the Olympics and am so happy to give back to what has given me so much over the last 15years! I am looking forward to the challenge ahead and the Road to Rio! www.olympics.com.au/qld
