2007 Athlete Survey Executive SummarySubscribe
The 2007 World Class Athlete Survey continues a series of similar surveys conducted in the Sydney and Athens Olympiads and provides an overview of athletes’ opinions on the World Class programmes and their experiences of being an elite athlete in the lead-up to the Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games.
With a number of questions relating directly to UK Sport’s new Mission 2012 tracking process, the survey also offers an important athlete perspective on the progress that NGBs are making towards delivering success at London 2012. Indeed, at the end of January 2008, 38 sport-specific ‘mini-reports’ covering the relevant survey findings were sent to individual NGBs to help them prepare their Mission 2012 self-assessment reports.
This summary report focuses on some of the survey findings that we think will be of particular interest to athletes. It starts by looking at the athletes themselves – who they are, what they do and what they spend. It then examines athletes’ views on the different support services they receive and concludes by considering their broader perceptions of the World Class environment in which they are operating.
