Olympians must be taught to behave: AOC

Some Australian Olympians need educating to improve their behaviour, the new chairperson of the Australian Olympic Committee's athletes' commission says.

The new chair, Kim Crow, won silver and bronze medals at the recent London Olympics which were marred by reports of misbehaving Australians.

Crow's rowing colleague Josh Booth was sent home for breaking two shopfront windows while drunk.

And Australia's men's swimming 4x100m freestyle relay team have been accused of childish disruptive behaviour at a Games lead-in camp that contributed to team disharmony.

Crow says athletes must realise competing at an Olympics is a privilege that comes with responsibility.

"We need to set a standard for the young kids coming through," Crow told ABC News 24 on Tuesday.

"It is about what (behaviour) is acceptable and what is not."

Crow was among seven new members of the athletes' commission who pledged to improve behaviour standards at future Games.

"We had a great chat about what the Olympics mean to all of us and what is special about the Olympics," she said.

"And how we are going to reinforce those values amongst the team over the next four years and into the future.

"As Olympians we have a responsibility to be good sports people, be ambassadors for our country and we should wear the green and gold with pride.

"Behaviour is something we are really looking at and I think that it is an education thing as well."

Crow said the commission also wanted Olympic athletes to better engage with the community.

"A lot are already doing fantastic work at grassroots but we need to see how much we can engage and build the Olympic movement," she said.

"Because there is a wonderful tradition in Australia and we really want to continue that into the future."
