We have all missed Ian Atkinson recently – but he has been rather busy. Ian has just returned from Orlando, having been involved in the delivery of the INVICTUS GAMES for Prince Harry – not to mentioned the media around the world. From a huge list of applicants, Ian was selected by the INVICTUS management team, to take overall responsibility for delivery of all the outdoor events in Orlando – including the swimming and the athletics. It was a huge responsibility as the TV coverage was significant and the viewing figures astronomic.
Ian has developed a unique skill set, working at major swimming events in recent years, including the Olympics. He understands the needs of the competitors and has unique technical knowledge plus that key ingredient – he builds teams and manages people really well.
Pictured at Orlando, Ian is seen with his colleague responsible for the indoor events and the legendary Ian Thorpe.
Ian – congratulations on this appointment which was richly deserved. We are all very proud of you at Wroughton ASC.
