Published 15 January 2020


In response to the Queensland Academy of Sport’s announcement that Chelsea Warr will be joining their team as CEO later this year, a UK Sport spokesperson said:

“We would like to thank Chelsea Warr, Director of Performance, for the significant contribution she has made to British Olympic and Paralympic sport over the past 18 years; both at UK Sport and prior to that at British Swimming. We wish her every success in her new role in her home country, Australia.

“We are delighted that Chelsea’s excellent Deputy Director of Performance Michael Bourne has agreed to lead the team on an interim basis and with immediate effect, to ensure continued support for our Performance team and sports as they complete their Tokyo preparations. 

“We are looking forward to commencing our search for our next Director of Performance, as one of the most exciting roles in British, if not global, sport.”
