Chris Cohen: officiating trailblazer

Continuing our series of interviews with British officials who will be volunteering at the Paris Olympics and Paralympics, we got the chance to ask Chris Cohen a few questions about his officiating journey and experiences along the way. This year is a notable one for Chris – not only is he celebrating 50 years of officiating, but 2024 is a first for him – and for our country; his first time as Technical Delegate at an Olympics. The TD is the most senior competition management position and Chris is the first British official to be TD at an Olympics AND a World Championships! His role is to oversee overall competition organisation from appointment to completion of competition reports.

England Athletics Talent Hubs supporting athletes on the international stage

The summer season has well and truly started as all eyes have been on the Para Worlds in Kobe and the European Championships in Rome. The British contingent have made some very impressive statements at this early point in the season, with much more excitement still to come over the summer as they battle for spots on the Olympic and Paralympic squads. Making the world stage is without doubt an incredible achievement, and we love to support the English athletes as they run, jump, throw and push against the very best in their field. However, we are also passionate about celebrating those behind the scenes; the clubs, personal coaches, support teams, and ourselves as the membership and development body who have all contributed to their journey to success.
