Isle of Man Athletics is pleased to announce the appointment of Mikey Haslett as Athletics Development Officer.
Athletics has long played a central role in Mikey’s life since he found his passion for jumping over things 20 years ago. Over the years Mikey has represented the Island at several Island Games and has even held on to a few Island Records in his favourite events the 400m Hurdles and 4 x 400m relay. A degree from Cardiff Met in Sports Development combined with Mikey’s experience at Manx Sport & Recreation and his passion for all things Athletics mean that we are particularly excited to have him on board.
Commenting on the appointment Isle of Man Athletics Chairman Anthony Brand said; “We are delighted that Mikey is joining Isle of Man Athletics to continue aiding the growth of our sport on the Island across all capabilities and circumstances, taking it to the next level. His enthusiasm is infectious so we’re excited for the future. We are extremely grateful for the support The Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation, Isle of Man Sport and the athletics clubs are providing.”
John Nugent from The Albert Gubay Charitable Foundation said: “We are delighted to be able to continue to support Isle of Man Athletics over the next 2 years in developing and expanding athletics across the island. One of the objectives of the Foundation is to encourage young people to get involved in sport, who may not normally have the opportunity. Isle of Man Athletics have shown us a clear plan to develop this in the future.”
