High Performance Conference, Scotland
On the Road to Rio, Sport Scotland, the national agency for Sport, gathered stakeholders in Scottish Sports’ success in Dunblane to focus on driving high performance.
The New Horizons event was attended by national coaches, performance directors of governing bodies of each of the major sports, including cycling, rugby, tennis, judo, snowboarding, bowls, hockey, netball, swimming, golf, curling, triathlon; key staff from British governing bodies; and other national sporting organisations like British Olympic Association and Commonwealth Games Scotland. Also participating were a plethora of performance providers, including physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, psychologists, strength & conditioning coaches, performance lifestyle advisers, and sports medicine doctors.
