VANCOUVER, BC - On Sunday February 2nd, a group of grade 12 BC Academy athletes, along with BC and RC Staff, met at UBC to attend a speed workshop presented by Olympic Gold Medalist Robert Esmie.
Robert led the group through a series of progressive activities designed to improve speed through movement efficiency.
“Robert’s ability to reach the athletes with his own unique delivery, coupled with the technical knowledge and understanding of his craft, provided a great environment for learning and athlete development,” said BC Rugby Provincial Coach and Director of Development, Dave Brown.
This is the first in a series of presentations to BC athletes by Esmie, with further presentations planned to other Academy athletes over the coming months.
