The IOC Athletes' Commission Strategy was launched at the 2017 International Athletes’ Forum. At its core is the desire to further strengthen athlete representation in decision-making bodies, to make sure that the athletes' viewpoint is heard at the highest level across all Olympic Movement stakeholders, and to empower athletes’ commissions and their members to become effective leaders.
Athlete representatives from all 206 National Olympic Committee athletes’ commissions will be added to the list of invitees for the first time, increasing the expected participation to around 350 athlete representatives and making this the biggest ever gathering of its kind. Other participants on the IOC Athletes’ Commission’s invitation list include all the Olympic Summer and Winter International Sports Federations.
