Liz Dawson is the NZOC’s first female President in its 111-year-old history. In the Oceania Continent, Dawson joins Makarita Lenoa, current President of the Fiji Association of Sport and National Olympic Committee (FASANOC) as head of an NOC.

Dawson said, ‘It is a true honour to be elected to this role, and to be a visible sign of the possibilities of leadership in sport for women in Aotearoa New Zealand, and more broadly in Oceania, is another step in the continuing development of the NZOC’s commitment to gender equity – as an organisation, for The NZ Team and athletes, and for our sporting communities.
