Beyond the Olympics.
Kirsty is a role model and hugely inspirational figure for many women and young people across Africa and the world of sport. Her memberships on the International Olympic Committee, World Anti-Doping Agency, International Surfing Federation and FINA are playing a key part in expanding the global Olympic movement and the development of sport.
Affectionately known as Zimbabwe's 'National Treasure' and 'Golden Girl', Kirsty continues to invest her time and experience in Africa. She is a member of the ANOCA Athlete's Commission, Vice-President of the Zimbabwe Olympic Committee, provides coaching and swimming lessons at her non-profit organization, the Kirsty Coventry Academy, and has recently launched a program for low-income and underserved areas - HEROES: Empowering children through sport.
