Lausanne (RWH) The Steering Committee for the IOC Athlete Charter is inviting elite-level athletes worldwide to share their voice and contribute to a second-phase survey that will continue to shape the document. Additionally, all athletes are invited to follow or join the conversation on social using the hashtags #ShareMyVoice and #AthleteCharter.

Aim of the Charter is to name and protect the basic rights but also responsibilities of athletes around the world. A first athlete survey detected five key topics: integrity and clean sport, governance and communication, career and marketing, safeguarding and sports competition.

“It’s about empowering athletes to succeed in their sport, making sure their voices are heard, and ensuring they have the best possible opportunities during and after their competitive careers,” said Steering Committee chair Sarah Walker, Olympic medal-winning BMX racer.

The Steering Committee is composed of 20 athlete representatives from across the Olympic Movement, including Peter van Wees (NED), former skeleton athlete, current chair of the IBSF Athletes' Advisory Committee and member of the IBSF Executive Committee. ©RWH2018
