Sport Ireland offered members of the media a preview of the centre, which opens in February

A new €4m high performance training facility – designed to help Ireland’s Olympic hopefuls win medals at major events – will open its doors in Dublin next month (February 2016).

More than 180 elite athletes from 18 different high performance sports will be based at the centre, located on the National Sport Campus in the capital city.

The centre will offer athletes elite physical conditioning, testing, rehabilitation, nutrition, physiology, medicine, precision analysis, education and life-skills.

Facilities include a four-lane indoor 130m track with performance analysis equipment, integrated long jump and a fully equipped world class physical conditioning area.

There is also an integrated medicine and rehab area, athletes' kitchen with nutrition demonstration and education area and social ecology space where athletes and coaches can rest from training.

In addition to the supporting high performance athletes, coaches and support staff, the facility will also support the Irish Amateur Boxing Association's high performance programme. With a fully specced out Boxing Gym, the facility will include four training rings and a full size competition ring, analysis equipment and coaches offices.

Commenting on the new centre, chair of Sport Ireland, Kieran Mulvey, said: "Our mission is to support Irish Sports to reach world podiums by ensuring excellence in the high performance system and delivering world class services.

“Our new High Performance Centre will provide a world class environment where our elite athletes can prepare at home to realise their performance potential on the world stage".

Planning permission for the Centre was achieved in April 2014 with construction started in November 2014.
