Our Champion for Peace

YELENA ISINBAEVA

I decided to become a Champion for Peace because sport has given me a lot and I feel oblige to give back to sport. I’m quite confident that through sport we can have a better world.


Current World Record-holder for women’s pole-vault, Yelena launched her foundation to come to the aid of disadvantaged children in Russia and teach the values of sport to them.
