Start the conversation

The Victorian Institute of Sport (VIS) has joined forces with its Federal, State and Territory counterparts to launch a national strategy aimed at building success towards the Brisbane 2032 Olympics.

Chief Executive of VIS, Anne Marie Harrison said the Australia’s High Performance 2032+ Sport Strategy represented the first time all peak bodies from across Australia’s Olympic, Paralympic and Commonwealth Games sports had united for a national high performance sport strategy.

“Bringing our collective vision of success immediately to life, the VIS joined sporting leaders in Sydney … and took a pledge to ‘Win Well’ – a foundation of the strategy and a new national commitment to balancing ambitious sporting goals with cultures that are safe, fair and supportive,” Ms Harrison said.

She said the Sport Strategy included Federal, State and Territory Institutes and Academies of Sport, peak Games bodies the Australian Olympic Committee, Paralympics Australia and Commonwealth Games, and National Sporting Organisations.

Ms Harrison said a key measure of success outlined within the Sport Strategy was to position Australia for its best ever Olympic and Paralympic performances at the Brisbane 2032 Games.

“But the strategy ultimately sets out to build ongoing, sustainable success for Australian high performance sport, before and after Brisbane 2032,” she said.

Chief Executive of the Australian Sports Commission, Kieren Perkins said the Strategy prioritised how the organisations would tackle areas like world-leading coaching and practices, athlete development pathways, performance environments, and a workforce driven by clear values and cultures.
