Olympic bronze medallist Tasha Danvers has been nominated for a role on the prestigious European Athletics Athlete Commission alongside 14 past and present starts of the sport including; Decathlon superstar Roman Sebrle of the Czech Republic and reigning Olympic Heptathlon champion Nataliya Dobrynska of the Ukraine.

The commission, which is elected every four years, is currently chaired by Swedish high jump star Stefan Holm and Mikaela Ingberg of Finland and also includes World triple jump record holder Johnathan Edwards in the position of European Athletics Council liaison.
