After competing that year in Atlanta – her fifth consecutive Olympic Games – Crooks was elected as a member of the International Olympic Committee’s (IOC) Athletes’ Commission. Crooks, who remains an IOC member, played an important role in developing the IOC’s Code of Ethics.

In 2009, she was named BC’s Sports Personality of the Year, bestowed on pillars of the community in the area of sport. She is the first woman ever to receive this award.

A long-time member of the COC’s Executive Committee (now board of directors), Crooks played an integral role in Toronto’s 2008 Olympic Bid. Crooks is vice-chair of the World Olympians Association and has served in various roles with the COC, VANOC, the World Anti-Doping Agency, the Pan American Sports Organization and Olympians Canada.

Crooks is the president and founder of NGU Consultants, a sports marketing, promotion and production company that develops and creates entertainment programming and provides strategic counsel for companies and athletes on a global basis.
