Great Britain set an Olympic record by winning 67 medals at the Rio 2016 Games, two more than they managed at their home Games of London 2012. The organisation, spearheaded by Director of Performance Chelsea Warr, is on a continuous hunt to identify and develop future talent, through constantly iterating its methodologies in the process. In Staffordshire, the Football Association is also embarking on a journey to create world-class talent at its state-of-the-art home, St. George’s Park. Gareth Southgate first became involved in the set-up when he worked on the creation of a new pathway whist operating as the Under-21 Head Coach and has since made the step up to Head Coach of the England men’s national team. Something must be working as England’s Under-19s won the European Championships this summer and the Under-20s claimed World Cup glory. The next challenge is to take this talent through to the senior team.
