UKA Performance Roadshow Belfast

Northern Irish athletes, coaches and support personnel will have a chance to meet key leads from UK Athletics in Belfast on 6th February.

UKA chief executive Jack Buckner and Olympic Programme Head Coach Paula Dunn will be holding a series of Open meetings across the UK as part of a three-week performance roadshow starting later this month.

Their visit to Northern Ireland will be held at the new University of Ulster, Belfast Campus at 6pm.

It is anticipated that athletes, coaches and parents on the British Athletics performance pathway, or with aspirations to do so in the future, would attend the roadshow to hear about the performance programme and to have the opportunity to ask questions.

Jack and Paula will hold Q&A sessions and provide the sport with a chance to speak directly to them on related subjects.

Jack Buckner said: “Whilst I have been in post as CEO since July 2022 and attended a number of events, I haven’t yet had the chance to get to as many parts of the country as I would want to. This performance roadshow is for the sport.

“I’m looking forward to getting out there and speaking to as many people as I can as well as answering the questions they want to know about Performance, teams and the world class programme. It would be great to meet people from all parts of the sport and would encourage people to sign up to attend at one of the nine meetings planned.”

Paula Dunn said: “After a great 2023 season building on from an unprecedented 2022 with four championships, as we start this Olympic year I want as many people as possible across the sport to hear about how we do things in the performance team.”

“It’s a huge year for the sport and we want to ensure people have the chance to ask questions, find out more about selection policies and what the World Class Programme is there to achieve. I’m really looking forward to meeting athletes and coaches from across the UK in person and hearing more about their reflections, questions, and feedback.”
