UK Sport and EIS reveal more sustainable high performance system

By Tom Walker    05 Dec 2013
Team GB enjoyed record-breaking success at London 2012

UK Sport and the English Institute of Sport (EIS) have announced number of changes to the UK's high performance system as part of a "shared vision" for building a stronger, more sustainable Team GB.

The changes include a new, evidence-based Mission 2016 tracking tool to support the on-going development of all World Class Performance Programmes, as well as a renewed focus on centralising data and analysis on athletes and World Class Programmes' performance pathways.

A Project Para Impact Group will also be established, in partnership with the British Paralympics Association and Home Country Sports Institutes. The group will be made up of multidisciplinary experts in high performance paralympic sport with a shared aim of accelerating the development of the Paralympic high performance system.

Meanwhile the EIS, UK Sport's science, medicine and technology arm, has made a number of refinements to its working relationships with sports. The changes have been designed to maximise the impact of the services it offers and provide athletes and coaches with access to world leading expertise.

One of the key measures includes the creation of a Performance Solutions team to manage relationships with sports and work with them to develop a Performance Partnership Plan.

This will allow EIS to deliver a holistic range of science, medicine, technology and research services designed to increase the probability of success by optimising training programmes, maximising performances in competition and reducing the number of training days lost to injury.

Simon Timson, director of performance at UK Sport, said: "Past success is no guarantee of future medals, and we must not assume replicating what we did for Beijing and London, because it produced incredible results, will work for Rio.

"We've been through a period of recalibration post-London, and, while we have a long way to go, I am confident that we are in a good position to achieve our goals at Rio 2016, PyeongChang 2018, and beyond.

"By standing firmly by our "no compromise" approach to investing in the right athletes and sports for the right reasons, developing more transformational relationships with sports, using the best available data and confronting the brutal facts when necessary while capturing and sharing best practice whenever possible, we are well on our way to building a stronger, more sustainable UK high performance system."
