Rio de Janeiro (dpa) - US ice hockey player Angela Ruggiero has been elected chair of the athletes commission of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the IOC said on Monday.

The current vice-chair Ruggiero, 36, takes over from outgoing Claudia Bokel of Germany, formally appointed during a joint meeting of the athletes commission and the IOC executive board following a vote by the members of the commission.

"It is an important time within the Olympic Movement and our commission has a great responsibility. I will make sure our voices aren‘t just heard, but that they are effective and that we empower athletes around the world to do the same," Ruggiero said.

The defender Ruggiero competed at four Winter Games, winning gold in 1998, silver 2002 and 2010, and bronze in 2006. She also has four world titles.

During the Rio Games August 5-21 the Olympic athletes will also elect four new members of the athletes‘ commission as the terms of Bokel, Dae Sung Moon, Alexander Popov and Yumilka Ruiz Luaces end after eight years.
