Ian is a coach for Wimborne Athletics Club in Dorset, training children of all ages in endurance running. Under his management the group which he leads has grown considerably in size, and all the children enjoy a lot of success. This success is the result of well planned training schedules, knowing each and every member personally, and making sure each member has every opportunity to achieve their potential. On a personal level I was injured in a car crash 5 years ago and would never have returned to the sport without his support and dedication. He truly inspires me, and I believe everyone else in the squad and therefore I believe he deserves this fantastic opportunity.
