Paralympian Is New SafeSport Chair
The U.S. Center for SafeSport has a new Chair of its board of directors.
In a June 22 announcement, SafeSport announced that Paralympic gold medalist April Holmes is taking over for outgoing Chair Jessica Herrera-Flanigan. Holmes previously was the Vice Board Chair and Athletic Director. She is the first Paralympian to serve as SafeSport’s Chair.
“As the first athlete and Paralympian to serve as the U.S. Center for SafeSport Board Chair, I see it as my duty to give back to the young people coming up behind me and my responsibility to demonstrate what representation and inclusive leadership look like,” Holmes said. “It is an honor to be selected by my fellow board members for this important role, and I look forward to working with them to ensure the Center remains focused on trust, independence, accountability, and continuous improvement.”
Holmes, a track and field athlete, is a three-time Paralympian medalist, having won medals in the Athens 2004, Beijing 2008, and London 2012 Games as a member of the United States team.
SafeSport describes itself as the United States’ “only independent organization dedicated to ending sexual, physical, and emotional abuse in U.S. Olympic and Paralympic sport.”
