Georgina Harland appointed to Team GB roles
Georgina Harland (GBR), women’s pentathlon bronze medallist at the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, has been entrusted with two senior team management roles within the British Olympic Association.
Having already served as Deputy Chef de Mission to Team GB at Rio 2016, she will again play this role at Tokyo 2020, overseeing the team’s kitting-out operation, the athlete journey and athlete services delivery.
Ms Harland has also been appointed Chef de Mission for the Lausanne 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games.
She said: “Tokyo will be my sixth summer Games and I am just as proud today as I was for my first Games, then as an athlete, in Sydney 2000.
“I have a deep passion for the Olympic Games and for Team GB in particular and I look forward to combining my on- and off-the-field experience to ensure we support the athletes to be the best prepared they can be for the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year.
“I am extremely proud to have been selected to lead Team GB in Lausanne next February. I attended the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in Singapore a decade ago as an Athlete Role Model and experienced first-hand what a fantastic development opportunity it is for young athletes.”
