Filming Continues for ‘How To Win’ Documentary

  |   How To Win, News

Although our web presence may be quiet of late, behind the scenes there is a lot of exciting activity already underway in developing our How To Win TV Documentary.

 
We have had some brilliant interviews from fantastic contributors such as the wonderful Catherina McKiernan in her local training facility – Dublin’s beautiful Phoenix Park. We’ve talked to Ian O’Riordan of The Irish Times and DCU’s Niall Moyna and Enda Fitzpatrick about the future of GAA and athletics in Ireland, with a personal insight into inter-county Gaelic football from Dublin’s Jonny Cooper who told us about the commitment needed to excel in GAA and how it feels to play in Croke Park in an All Ireland victory.

We also worked with ‘Master of the Mile’ Eamonn Coghlan, Director of the Institute of Sport Gary Keegan and Performance Director of Paralympics Ireland Dave Malone and discussed how the support structures in place for young sporting talent have changed over the years, and what lies ahead for our next generation.

At the end of this month we’ll be meeting with Sonia O’Sullivan, Mark English and Thomas Barr to talk about what makes a winner and how Ireland nurtures its athletic talent. We’ll also be talking to Dr. Brendan Egan in UCD about the influence of genetics as well as graft on elite sportspeople.
 
How To Win is an Athena Media production for Setanta Sports made with the support of the BAI and the TV licence fee.
