2021 International Athletes’ Forum
The 10th IAF was held virtually for the first time! It included live-streamed panel discussions and exclusive break-out sessions. Key discussion points were the Olympic Agenda 2020+5 athlete recommendations, Tokyo 2020 and Beijing 2022, and how to further empower and equip Athlete Commissions. If you missed it, you can watch the Forum here.
