Athletics Australia has announced Simon Hollingsworth OLY as its new Chief Executive Officer. A dual Australian Olympian and Rhodes Scholar, Hollingsworth brings a wealth of experience in sports administration, strategy, governance, commercial, and financial management skills to his new position.

Athletics Australia President Jane Flemming OLY OAM expressed her enthusiasm in welcoming Hollingsworth, highlighting his exceptional leadership abilities and understanding of the sporting landscape, particularly as the organisation heads towards the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Hollingsworth’s deep engagement with athletics post-retirement as an athlete, including roles within Athletics Australia and Athletics Victoria, positions him well to embrace his new challenge. His goal is to elevate the sport by fostering growth, inclusivity, and international opportunities, particularly in anticipation of the Brisbane 2032 Games.

After assuming his role in July 2024, Hollingsworth looks forward to leading Athletics Australia into a promising future filled with potential and positive impact.
