Retired Canadian athlete elected Chairperson of International Paralympic Committee

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) announced on Friday, March 31, 2017, that Canada’s Chelsey Gotell has been elected as Chairperson of the IPC Athletes’ Council for the next four years.

She is the second consecutive Canadian to gain the role. The 31-year-old from Antigonish, N.S. succeeds Todd Nicholson, elected to the Council in 2013. Nicholson was recently named Canada’s Chef de Mission for the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games.

Since retiring as an athlete, Gotell has remained involved in sport. Along with being part of Team Canada’s mission staff at the London 2012, Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, she worked in communications as well as sport and athlete relations with the Toronto 2015 Organizing Committee for the Pan/Parapan American Games.
