The British Olympic Association (BOA) has named Lisa Wainwright (Basketball) and David Joy (Canoeing) as its new board members while Sarah Treseder (Sailing) has been reappointed.

The appointments, all of whom will serve four-year terms, were announced after the elections at the National Olympic Committee (NOC). John James OBE, formerly secretary of the Lawn Tennis Association, was also announced as an honorary life vice president of the BOA. James has previously served as president of Tennis Europe and chairman of British Olympic Foundation (BOF).

BOA chairman, Sir Hugh Robertson, said: “Both Lisa and David will bring considerable experience across a range of Olympic sports to the newly constituted board.

“We are delighted they will be joining us at an exciting time for the Olympic movement in Great Britain and Northern Ireland, with the Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang 2018 nearly upon us and with our planning already at an advanced stage for Tokyo 2020.”

He further added: “Sarah Treseder has played an integral role at board level in the successful governing of the BOA and we are pleased to retain her services as a sports representative with considerable business and corporate experience.”
