The National Olympic Committee of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (NOC) today elected a Vice-Chairman and three Members to the British Olympic Association’s Board of Directrors. David Hemery was re-elected Vice Chairman for a two year period, with Simon Clegg, Richard Leman and Sarah Treseder securing a four year term each as Directors of the Board representing the Olympic Governing Bodies.
The National Olympic Committee also paid tribute to three individuals for their outstanding contributions and service to British Olympic sport. Dame Di Ellis and Albert Woods, both of whom have concluded their tenure as members of the BOA Board, have today been named Life Vice Presidents of the BOA. Robin Money, who has been with adidas since 1976 (37 years), and who helped shape the first formal relationship between adidas and Team GB in 1984 was also awarded Special Recognition. Throughout his distinguished career, Money has been a major contributor to the growth and success of Team GB, British Olympic sport, the National Governing Bodies and British athletes.
Said BOA Chairman Seb Coe:
“I would like to congratulate David, Simon, Richard and Sarah on their successful election to the Board of the British Olympic Association. Along with the entire Board, I very much look forward to their contributions.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Di and Albert for their outstanding service to the Board and welcome them as Life Members. The importance of volunteer service should never be underestimated and we are extremely fortunate to have so many dedicated and knowledgeable volunteers, past and present, who have helped shape and direct the British Olympic Association.
“And to Robin and our many friends at adidas, we pay tribute and offer our thanks for everything they do to support Team GB and give our athletes the best opportunity for success in the Olympic arena.”
