Nicole Livingstone stepsdown from AOC Executive

17 November 2017

AOC: Swimming Olympian Nicole Livingstone today announced she is stepping down from her position as Executive member of the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC), effective immediately, after announcing she will take up a position with the AFL as Head of Women’s Football.

Chairing a meeting of the Executive in Melbourne today, President of the AOC, John Coates, recognised the contribution Livingstone made to Australia’s Olympic movement.

“Nicole has made an outstanding and valuable contribution to the AOC and has been a strong advocate for all athletes.

“I thank Nicole for her dedication and commitment to the growth of the Olympic Movement in Australia. An Olympian herself she has been able to provide first hand advice to the Executive on all activities of the AOC.

“Nicole is a highly regarded sports administrator and I wish her well in her new role at the AFL.” said Coates.

A three time Olympian Nicole made her Olympic debut in 1988 in Seoul. Four years later, her bronze medal in the women’s 200m backstroke in Barcelona was Australia’s first women’s backstroke medal since 1948, and only its third in the history of the Games. Showing her versatility as a relay swimmer, in 1996 in Atlanta at her third and final Games, she won medals in both the women’s 4 x 100m medley relay (silver) and 4 x 200m freestyle relay (bronze).

She was elected to the AOC Executive in 2013.
