Twice Olympic track cycling gold medallist Anna Meares (39) will lead Australia's delegation at the Paris Summer Games in 2024 after being named Chef de Mission on Sunday.

Meares competed at four Olympics winning six medals including gold in the 500 metres time trial in Athens in 2004 and the sprint in London in 2012. She is second woman to lead an Australia team at a Summer Games after Rio 2016 Chef de Mission Kitty Chiller, replaces Ian Chesterman.

"Anna is a leader and has a passion for serving athletes," said Chesterman, who was elected President of the Australian Olympic Committee after the Tokyo Olympics.

"She has walked in the athletes' shoes at four Olympic Games, winning medals of every colour and was our team captain in Rio."
