Dual bocce code champion Diane Penney has joined the Confederazione Boccistica Internazionale (CBI) World Bocce-Raffa Athletes commission to represent the athlete voice.
Diane was appointed by CBI President, Dr Mutlu Turkmen, in consultation with CBI Secretary General Antonio Biancacci.
The role of the Athlete Commission is to communicate the interests of high-performance bocce athletes and to act as the collective voice for those athletes. It works in cooperation with the CBI to achieve its mission to represent athletes within the Bocce-Raffa code of the sport and support them to succeed in their sporting and non-sporting careers.
This acknowledgement to appoint Diane is another great coup for Bocce Australia and especially for Diane. It is testimony that the world bocce governing body sees Bocce Australia as a leader in bocce governance and know-how, producing not only good quality athletes but also excellent administrators in the sport.
Congratulations Diane! We’re sure you will be a great advocate for all bocce athletes around the globe and will do Australia proud.
