What Global Athlete Aims to do and Why it is Important

ROB KOEHLER
GLOBAL ATHLETE DIRECTOR GENERAL

 

Global Athlete does things differently.

We champion a “bottom up” approach whereby the athletes determine and dictate what needs to change and the best way of achieving that change. Think of it as a balancing of the scales, and putting athletes on a fair footing with administrators because, together, so much more can be achieved for the greater good of sport.

Throughout 2019, Global Athlete will be carrying out an extensive “listening exercise” to discover what athletes want. Importantly, this will be done with athletes of all sports and all countries centred around the Olympic and Paralympic movement.

Athletes are the ones competing on the field, in the pool or on the track every day. They should be given a real say on the future of sport. If you consider yourself an athlete that wants to have a real say, then join the Movement today.
