We are pleased to introduce the EliteWellbeing coaches who are working with our Athletics team. Learn more about our Athletics and Cross Country training program here.
Craig Mottram: Program Manager
Craig is a four-time Olympian, World Championship and Commonwealth Games medalist and holds several, local, state national and international records. One of his most notable athletic highlights is running 12:55 for 5000m. Most importantly, Craig’s presence on the international athletics scene altered the culture of modern long-distance running, as he beat the odds with his success against the dominant African nations, paving the way for others to do the same. Craig will oversee the EliteWellbeing program at Tintern, including the creation of all training plans and programs to ensure each athlete is improving across multiple fields.
