“The BAC play a vital role for athletes, providing information and support when it is most needed. I am proud to be a part of the AAG so that I can use my experience as an international athlete to help current athlete’s be the very best they can be. I am most passionate about athlete transition, mental health, diversity and inclusion.”
Kate Richardson Walsh - GB Hockey
"As a member of the AAG, I focus my efforts on embedding a transitional process from sport to industry. I’m a Private Banker and was able to manage both my career at the bank whilst on my Olympic journey. For me, the importance of the balance of both sports and education is something I hold in high regard.”
Abdul Buhari - Discus Throw
"I want to ensure our athletes feel supported, know who to turn to and know that there are no repercussions to speaking out about the issues they are facing in performing their best and representing their country. Every athlete should be given the fair opportunity to reach their potential without prejudice, discrimination or bias."
David Hill - Para Triathlon
"I became a member of the Athlete Advisory Group as I strongly believe the British Athlete's Commission is an essential independent organisation in promoting the athlete voice, representing, offering support and guidance to elite athletes and I wanted to support that mission. Being part of the AAG has allowed me to develop my strategic thinking and influencing skills and to better understand the British sporting landscape at a governance level which I already feel is helping me in my other roles."
