Announcing our Athlete Panel

The Athlete Panel is an athlete representative panel which will provide feedback, advice and support England Athletics and the Board with key areas impacting domestic competition and participation in the sport. The Athlete Panel - currently 11 athletes - aims to represent ‘the voice’ of competitive athletes taking part in all disciplines and event groups at every level of competition. The panel members also work closely with the UKA Athletes’ Commission, who represent the voice of elite athletes competing at the highest level in sport.
