Former Winter Olympic freestyle skiing champion Alisa Camplin-Warner has become the deputy chair of the Australian Sports Commission Board.
The 42-year-old has been brought onto the Board, which helps determine what contributions the Government makes to sports at all levels, by Australia’s Sports Minister Greg Hunt.
Camplin-Warner topped the women’s aerial competition at the 2002 Games in Salt Lake City, with her victory coming just two days after short track speed skater Steven Bradbury famously won the country’s first Winter Olympic gold.
She then claimed a bronze in the same event four years later in Turin.
Since retiring from the sport, Camplin-Warner has held a number of administrative roles, including being a non-executive director for the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia and chairperson of the Australian Sports Foundation.
At the 2016 Winter Youth Olympics in Lillehammer, Camplin-Warner was Australia’s Chef de Mission.
She will be the deputy Chef de Mission for the country at Pyeongchang 2018.
“Sport has the power to enrich our communities and should play a fundamental role in the lives of all Australians,” Camplin-Warner said.
"I am committed to promoting health prevention through sport participation, and helping Australia’s athletes, coaches and the sport sector achieve long-term, sustainable success.
"I’m honoured to be deputy chair and welcome the responsibility to help lead the Australian Sports Commission as part of a strong and collegiate board."
