Athlete Engagement Series, pr... | Australian Olympic Committee

We're hosting a monthly Athlete Engagement Series, presented by Allianz, designed specifically to support athletes' wellbeing.


With the Tokyo Games postponed one year, and the spread of COVID-19 creating uncertainty, we're here to support you by providing useful and practical information, and most importantly, to answer your questions.

The sessions take place towards the end of each month and we'll be emailing you the Thursday before the session, with links to the Q&As, updates from the AOC, and some other content that we hope you'll find relevant and useful.

RE: Athlete Engagement Webinar - Full Replay

Tokyo 2020 Chef de Mission Ian Chesterman and Deputy Chef Susie O'Neill gave a live update on Wednesday 10th February following the release of the Tokyo Playbook for athletes released earlier that week.

Ian and Susie answered questions about the impact of the playbook on preparation for the Games and what the Games will look like in July this year.

The playbook is the first of three iterations, with more detail expected in April and again in June.

AOC Manager of Olympian Services Daniel Kowalski hosted this week's live session which is available to view below.

Please note Daniel's audio is low at the start, but is corrected during the course of the session. Ian and Susie have excellent audio throughout.

The video runs approximately 26 minutes.

Ian will continue to provide written updates as more information on the Tokyo Games and the AOC's planning is available.
