Inside The Commission

During the Sochi Olympic Winter Games, two athletes were elected to join the IOC Athletes’ Commission.

Norwegian biathlete Ole Einar Bjørndalen, who claimed his record 13th Olympic title at the Sochi Games, and Canadian ice hockey star Hayley Wickenheiser were elected for eight-year terms after a record 80.87 per cent of Olympians eligible voted.

We had the chance to speak with the two new members about their new role, what they are looking forward to and how they intend to represent athletes within the Olympic Movement.

Their sporting achievements prove they are well equipped and ready for the task ahead!
