Donna Fraser: 4x Team GB Olympian and Vice President of UK Athletics

Donna Fraser is a former sprinter, who competed at four consecutive Olympic Games for Great Britain, has developed a wealth of experience within the field of equality and diversity communications since her retirement from competitive athletics in 2009.

Between 2011-2015, Fraser held the position of president of the South of England Athletics Association, while from 2013-2015 she also undertook the role of chair of the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Network at EDF Energy.

In December of 2015 Fraser became Vice President of UK Athletics Members Council, a role she will remain in as agreed with the other members of the council.

After 19 years at EDF Energy, Donna returned to her passions in 2017, taking on a new role with UK Athletics as their Equality, Diversity & Engagement Lead and for the organising committee of the 2017 world athletics championships in London.

From the track to the boardroom, Donna has created a career synonymous with all the characteristics that you’d attribute to one of Britain’s greats. An expansive profile filled with medals, podium positions and significant accomplishments that tell the story of a European Junior Champion from Croydon that rose to become one of our most fearless world class Olympians.  But the aforementioned accolades only scratch the surface of Donna’s armoury. To characterise by her sporting achievements alone is to do a great disservice to the inspiring woman that she is today. The woman that battled her way through Breast Cancer to then go on to achieve a qualifying time to compete for trials at the 2012 Games.

Donna continues to be active and spends much of her time ‘giving back’ to the community she served as a Team GB athlete, including:

  • Television/media appearances (including Total Wipeout, Sky Sports News, CNN, BBC Radio; 5 Live, BBC London)
  • Motivational Speaking –  corporate business, universities and schools across the UK
  • Corporate Health and Well Being Expert
  • Breast Cancer Now Ambassador
  • Support Sport Through Sport Patron
  • ‘The Olympians’ Committee Member
  • Trustee for Sussex Cricket Foundation and the London Marathon Charitable Trust
  • Women’s Sports Trust #beagamechanger Panel 2017

 

Donna will host Wellfit 16th-29th April
