Three-time Olympian, Andréanne Morin, has been reappointed to the Athlete Committee at the World Anti Doping Agency or WADA. It is a three-year appointment that begins January 1st, 2015.
Morin competed at the Athens, Beijing and London Olympics, winning a silver medal in the women’s eight at the London Games in 2012.
WADA was established on November 10, 1999 to promote and coordinate the fight against doping in sport internationally.
The Athlete Committee was established in 2005 to represent the views and rights of athletes around the globe, while providing insight and oversight into athletes’ roles and responsibilities as it relates to anti-doping in sport.
“I am inspired to fight doping in sport because I believe in fair play,” says Morin. “Every sportsperson should be able to look across the start line and have the peace of mind that nothing other than natural athletic abilities and mental focus separates them from any competitor.”
Morin retired from rowing following the London Olympics. She currently practices law in Montreal.
