Australian Olympic canoeing champion Jessica Fox appointed to IOC AC

Australia’s Jessica Fox has been appointed to the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Athletes’ Commission.

The canoeing champion – who won gold in the first women’s canoe slalom at Tokyo 2020 this summer – has joined the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Athletes’ Commission (AC) to represent the athlete voice inside the Olympic Movement.

IOC President Thomas Bach appointed Fox, in accordance with the IOC AC regulations, to ensure a balance between genders, regions and sports within the Commission.

Her selection improves athlete representation for Oceania and broadens the representation of sports with a canoe athlete in light of the future Olympic Games in Brisbane 2032.

Fox has won 26 World Cups, 7 World Championships, and 4 Olympic medals in the last 10 years.
