AOC applauds Camplin-Warner ASC appointment

28 June 2017

AOC: The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) congratulates dual Olympic medallist, Alisa Camplin-Warner on her appointment as the Deputy Chair of the Australian Sports Commission.

AOC CEO, Matt Carroll said this announcement is a positive appointment for the future of Australian sport.

“Alisa has received global recognition for her achievements in Freestyle Skiing and together with her sporting administration experience is eminently qualified to fill the position of Deputy Chair of the ASC”

“I am sure the entire Australian Olympic movement will applaud this appointment,” said Carroll.

Outside of her own sporting career, Camplin-Warner has served in many Olympic sporting administrative roles including Chef de Mission of the Innsbruck 2012 Youth Winter Olympic Team.

In just over six months, Camplin-Warner will join the Australian Winter Olympic Team at the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games as Performance Manager. 

“Devoted to both Winter sports and the wider sporting community, Alisa is admired and respected by the athletes, officials and volunteers for her hands-on approach.

“We look forward to working with her at the 2018 Games and into the future.”

At the age of 27, Camplin-Warner represented Australia at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games, where she made history, claiming the nation’s first Olympic skiing gold medal in the women’s aerials.

Despite having knee surgery six weeks prior to the Opening Ceremony, Camplin-Warner made her second Olympic appearance at the Torino 2006 Olympic Games where she claimed another Olympic medal, a bronze.

At the 2006 Games, she also led the 40-strong Australian Team as the flag bearer in the Opening Ceremony before announcing her retirement later that year.
