Egypt’s Aya Medany to join IOC’s Athletes’ Commission
After her appointment, Medany will become the first modern pentathlete to be appointed to the IOC’s Athletes’ Commission, which acts as a liaison between the athletes and the IOC.
Medaney participated in three olympic games, starting her olympic career at the age of 15 in the 2004 Athens Olympics. She was the youngest in the Egyptian team and the youngest pentathlete.
The 27-year-old won three gold medals at the African Championship, one silver at the 2008 World Championship, and has won three World Cups. In 2013, Aya Medany announced her retirement at the age of 24.
Aya Medany is one of four athletes nominated by the president, while the remaining 16 members were elected during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
