Oarsome Foursome Legend joins the Australian Sports Commission Board

Rowing great Nicholas Green OAM has been appointed onto the board of the Australian Sports Commission (ASC), adding to a decorated career as a sports administrator after his success on the water in the green and gold.

Green was a member of the legendary Oarsome Foursome that clinched Olympic gold medals in 1992 and 1996 in the Men’s Coxless Four. Now a senior executive, Green brings valuable experience from his work in large global corporations, the public sector, and not-for-profit organisations.

His extensive sports administration background includes roles as Chief Executive Officer of Cycling Australia, Director of the Australian Olympic Committee and Commonwealth Games Australia, President of the Victorian Olympic Council, and Chef de Mission of the 2012 Australian Olympic Team.

Green will join the new Chair, Kate Jenkins AO, who brings with her an impressive 30-year career as Australia's leading authority on respect and equality in both the workplace and sports.

Jenkins' extensive experience includes prominent roles such as Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner and Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner.

Alongside Green and Jenkins, Dr. Bridie Kean PLY joins the Commission. Dr. Kean is a dual Paralympic medallist and lecturer at the University of the Sunshine Coast. She served as the Paralympic athlete representative during the Brisbane 2032 bid process and was recently appointed Deputy Chef de Mission of the 2024 Australian Paralympic Team.

Rowing Australia looks forward to the future under the new leadership and the continued success and inclusivity of Australian sports.
