Eddie’s title is Technical Director of the British Men’s Artistic Gymnastics Programme, but he is effectively the discipline’s head coach. Under his guidance the Programme has gone from underperformance and a total funding cut in 2004, to an Olympic Bronze medal in 2008, 4 medals at the 2012 Olympics and 4 medals including a gold in Rio in 2016. At the same time, athletes from the Programme have won the last 5 European Junior Championships in the team event. Eddie will share the coaching foundations and building blocks of the Programme’s success.
Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity.
