Alexandra, a two-time Paralympic medallist for Great Britain in a distinguished sailing career, will work alongside Ricardo Navarro, announced in February as Technical Delegate for the event.

The 41-year-old leads on the delivery of the global governing body’s strategy for sustainability.

With Alexandra joining Ricardo, World Sailing will have a 50-50 gender split in the Technical Delegate roles for the Olympics for the first time.

“I am thrilled and excited to be fulfilling this important role for my sport. “Competing at the2008, 2012 and 2016 Paralympics was the highlight of my career as an athlete and I look forward to supporting the delivery of an event which matches the expectations of our sailors and meets our strategic commitments to sustainability as an international federation.” World Sailing Head of Sustainability Alexandra Rickham
