Gearoid Towey – Crossing the Line Sport
Three-time Olympic rower and former World Champion, Gearoid Towey has worked in athlete personal development for Western Sydney Wanderers Football Club and the New South Wales Institute of Sport. Since he retired from rowing at the Beijing Olympic Games, he became aware that athlete transition is a serious issue affecting thousands of people and that a lot more can be done to help athletes prepare for the day they must move on.
Gearoid founded Crossing The Line Sport because he felt athletes really need an independent and confidential resource where ex-athletes support each other through their own experiences. Too many amazing people get stuck in no-mans land when they retire from the sport. The website, face-to-face workshops, 1:1s and long-term programs aim to educate current athletes and support retired athletes in all sports, in whatever part of the world we are asked to work in.
As prize Gearoid is offering a webinar on Digital Nutrition for free.
