Malcolm Ingham standing down as Performance Leader

After more than eight years in the role, ONZ’s Performance Leader has chosen to retire following the inaugural Oceania Sprint Championships. Malcolm has been instrumental in all aspects of our High Performance Programme – from the creation of the Oceania Sprint Championships, U23 Camp and National Sprint League, the creation and administration of our High Performance Plan, maintaining our relationship with High Performance Sport NZ, managing numerous national teams, overseeing our National O League, advocating for and applying for world ranking events, running numerous training camps, supporting Prime Minister’s Scholarships, more than 100 issues of High Performance News… The truth is that we could write pages on what Malcolm has achieved in the role and the results that we have achieved on the world stage during his tenure.

Malcolm never accepted payment for the role which has very much been a labour of love. The challenge on how High Performance will best be staffed is something the ONZ Board will decide on in the new year.  Once this has been agreed on, the new position(s) will be advertised.
