  • September 24th, 2008


Charles van Commenee, a Dutch has been appointed as the new national performance director of UK Athletics. After a disappointing Olympic Beijing games where Team GB picked up only four medals, Commenee is en-tasked to rebuild where Dave Collins the former director falters

Especially when the next games in 2012 will be held in London, home pride is at stake here and the 50 year old is picked due to his direct no-nonsense style of managing to produce results
