Gold medal track cyclist Anna Meares is one of eight athletes elected as new Australian Olympic Committee sports representatives.
Members of team green and gold who travelled to London for the Games have voted for the new contingent of: Meares, pole vaulter Steve Hooker, rowers Kim Crow and James Tomkins, gymnast Lauren Mitchell, cyclist Stuart O'Grady, kayaker Ken Wallace, and diver Loudy Wiggins.
Each will take a position on the AOC's Athlete's Commission.
"We are delighted with the calibre of the people chosen by the athletes to represent them, and the AOC executive looks forward to working with the Commission to ensure the needs of the athletes are always central to our decision making," AOC secretary-general Craig Phillips said in a statement.
The Commission plays a key role in finalising preparations in the lead up to Olympic campaigns, with the eight newly-elected representatives set to join winter Olympians, Paul Murray and Jenny Owens.
"The Athlete's Commission is a great sign from the AOC that the views of the athletes are important, and along with the other elected members, I look forward to getting to work," Hooker said.
