38. Elite performance, Team Sky & UK Sport - Dr Scott Drawer

The Watchword Podcast

Scott started life as a talented all round sportsman without a particular plan. He followed his passion and studied Sports & Sports Science in great detail, eventually gaining a PHD and a PGCE. As Scott explains, he didn’t have a plan, he kept studying because he was passionate about sport and performance. People often say that we should follow our passions in life, whilst this is certainly true, it can be difficult to achieve when real life or pragmatism gets in the way, or perhaps you’ve never been told to follow your passion. As Scott says, he was lucky, the beginning of his career coincided with a revolution in UK Sport investment and development, he went on to spend 10 years with UK Sport working on the Olympic programme, two years at the English Rugby Football Union, three years at team Sky Cycling Performance Hub and he is now two years into his tenure as Director of Sport at Millfield School. You can now listen to this episode and all other episodes of the podcast via our website which is https://thewatchword.co.uk, we are pleased with it, I made it with the assistance of my friend and guest number two on the podcast Paul Mather.
