The role of sports administrator in elite sport
By Ms. Cindy Leung
Elite Sports Training Programme is more than just training facilities and equipment, athletes and coaches. Behind every medal and each moment of glory, there is a comprehensive machinery and support system behind to make it all happen. Other than the better-known and more visible Sports Science and Sports Medicine in-house and on-field support, or the athlete support areas, all other supporting forces at the HKSI play a significant role in the success of the Programme. Among them, the Coaching Support Department is probably most mysterious and confusing – are they assisting the work of the coaches, or giving them more work? Finding them the money, or stopping them from spending the money? Who is supporting who any way?
