BOA Appoint Moore as Head of Athlete Engagement

May 26, 2011

After hanging on to team GB deputy Chef de Mission Clive Woodward last week, the British Olympic Association (BOA) has announced the addition of Belinda Moore to its performance services team as head of athlete engagement.

Moore’s responsibilities include delivering programmes and services that enhance athlete engagement with the BOA and support their performances at major international events that fall within the remit of the organisation.

She brings considerable Olympic experience from a 13-year career at BBC Sport where she worked on-site at six Olympic Games and will work closely with the BOA Athletes’ Commission.

Moore said: “I am thrilled to be joining the British Olympic Association at such an exciting time for Team GB.

“Preparing for an Olympic Games on home soil is a unique challenge and I am really looking forward to the opportunity to combine the project management skills I have developed over 13 years at the BBC with my passion for and understanding of the Olympic Games in order to help prepare our Olympic athletes to maximise their performance on home soil in 2012 and far beyond.”

Andy Hunt, Team GB Chef de Mission and BOA chief executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome Belinda Moore to the BOA team.

“We have worked very hard to ensure that the BOA puts athletes at the heart of all our planning and decision-making and I am pleased that Belinda’s considerable Olympic experience, dynamism and project management skills will be focused on leading our programmes to prepare athletes and their wider support groups for the biggest moment of their careers.”
