This is an important and positive step, consistent with the CGF’s strategy to place Athletes at the heart of Commonwealth Sport.

The six Regional Representatives and one Para Representative were elected by each Commonwealth Games Association’s (CGAs) Athlete Representative Body (ARB) who voted for their Regional Representative and elected a Para Representative.

The Athletes’ Advisory Commission (AAC) is chaired by Brendan Williams who will be joined by the following Athlete representatives: Para Representative: Matt Levy – Australia (Swimming); Africa Representative: Moroke Mokhotho – Lesotho (Boxing); Asia Representative: Terry Tay – Singapore (Gymnastics); Caribbean Representative: Makeba Alcide – St Lucia (Athletics); Europe Representative: Suzy Drane – Wales (Netball); Oceania Representative: Julia Ratcliffe – New Zealand (Athletics) and Americas Representative: Chelsea Edghill – Guyana (Table Tennis)
