As well as celebrating the current generation of OMK athletes participating in the Tokyo Olympics, we also celebrate a number of OMK Olympians who are participating themselves, this time behind the scenes.
Sharron Davies (1978-80), Mark Foster (1986-88) and Andy Jameson (1978-83) have been commentating on the swim races for BBC whilst Glenn Cook (1978-81) has been training our Team GB triathletes for the Games.
Andy Jameson (1978-83; Seoul 1988 – silver) provided exciting live commentary on the Olympic swimming races for the BBC from within the UK, and we were all delighted when he gave Mount Kelly a ‘shout-out’ as OMK Federico Burdisso (2017-19) won Bronze for Italy in a nail-biting finish! Providing race analysis and commentating from within Tokyo for the BBC screens were Sharron Davies (1978-80; Moscow 1980 – silver) and Mark Foster (1987; Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000, Beijing 2008). Modern-pentathlete turned triathlete Heather Fell (1995-01; Beijing-2008 – silver medal) provided live commentary from within Tokyo for the the Olympic Broadcast Service at both the Olympics and Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
Behind the scenes as coaches were Olympian and former Mount Kelly Director of Swimming and OMK Robin Brew (1978-80; Los Angeles 1984) who trains fellow OMK and para triathlete Lauren Steadman (2012-14) who secured a fabulous Gold in the PTS5 triathlon, whilst former ITU World Champion triathlete Glenn Cook (1978-81) coached the mixed triathlon GB Team to a Gold victory in this inaugural Olympic event.
