Isle of Man Athletics is pleased to announce the appointment of Hannah Riley as Athletics Development Officer. Hannah’s vast experience in athletics has been gained through two decades of competing for the Isle of Man at international level. Hannah’s athletics resume includes 21 Island Games medals, including 8 gold, numerous Manx records and more recently GB recognition. Hannah’s background in teaching, and athletics made her the ideal candidate.
Commenting on the appointment Isle of Man Athletics Chairman Anthony Brand said; “We are delighted that Hannah is joining us. Five years ago we identified the need for a full time development officer to help grow athletics on the Island across all capabilities and circumstances and take it to the next level. It has been a long and difficult journey to find the funding and the right person for this role. 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 support Isle of Man Athletics over the next 3 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.”
