Britain's most successful ever Olympian will champion the drive to get more people playing sport.
Redgrave, five times Olympic rowing champion, said: "2012 is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to change the habits of a nation and get across to everyone why sport and physical activity matters.
"This is a great responsibility but a great opportunity as well.
"I want to work with those who have the task of making sure the benefits happen from hosting the Olympics and Paralympics but I won't be afraid to ruffle feathers if I need to."
