IMG Academy was chosen for our Australian athletics team as our final preparation camp prior to Rio. From a performance viewpoint the facilities are second to none and met all the daily training environment requirements for our athletics team of sixty athletes, team staff and travelling personal coaches. The accommodation options provided a ‘home away from home’ atmosphere which greatly added to the emotional wellbeing of our athletes and in addition the fully equipped apartments allowed athletes to maintain their specific dietary routines. Every aspect of high performance training and regeneration was catered for and I have no doubt the camp greatly aided our performances in Rio. From a high performance aspect the IMG Academy offers a ‘one stop shop’ for all your athlete’s needs and IMG staff were only to too willing to assist with our every need.
