Mark Tewksbury is an Olympic swimming gold medalist, educator, and social change leader. In 1998, Mark made headlines when he came out as one of the first openly gay Olympic champions in the world. He has since been a leader and mentor in the global LGBTQ+ human rights movement. His social contribution extends beyond his athletic achievements, as he has been actively involved in the fight for justice, fair play, and equal rights through sport.
Mark shared why he believes sport can be an agent of social change and has the power to transform lives. He also addressed the postponement of Tokyo 2020; explored the place for protest and activism within sport; and told us more about his Corporate Champions Program.
