EA London Olympic Review

Following on from the London Olympic cycle, Equestrian Australia has commenced its review of its High Performance program.

The panel assembled (click here for panel details) examined areas of the high performance program, with the next step to gather further information from those directly involved in the London 2012 Games to assist in the formation of recommendations for the Rio Olympic Games cycle.

Independent facilitator of the review David Crocker, Australian Sports Commission Director of Sport Performance and Planning, said there were four (4) key objectives to the review and several strategies were being used ahead of forming recommendations.  

“The workshop held in Sydney in early October with the expert panel looked at key areas under the terms of reference and examined the research that had already been conducted prior to the workshop.

“This forms just one part of the review, with further consultation to occur and evidence to be gathered prior to recommendations being established by the panel,” he said.

The four (4) objectives of the Equestrian Australia High Performance 2009-2012 review are:

(i)            To evaluate the systems, strategy and delivery of the Equestrian Australia 2009-12 High Performance Plan and its impact on performances of the Equestrian Team at the 2012 London Olympic Games.

(ii)           To evaluate the preparation and delivery of the Equestrian Olympic Team and the impact on its performances.

(iii)          To identify gaps between the current and preferred delivery arrangements of the High Performance program having regard to stakeholder feedback of best practice principles and practices; and

(iv)         To deliver a set of findings and recommendations for changes to remedy any gaps identified.

The outcomes of the review will underpin the development of EA’s High Performance program for the coming Rio Olympic cycle.
