UK Sport award for Craig Morris

Craig Morris, British Canoe Slalom Technical Coach, has won a prestigious award at the UK Sport PLx Conference for his special impact on High Performance in a Sport.

The award is given to those within the High Performance system 'who go above and beyond to make an exceptional impact beyond the norm'. Morris was praised for his person-centred philosophy and the focus he puts on welfare, health and well-being.
Under his guidance Mallory Franklin, Kimberley Woods and Adam Burgess secured themselves tickets for Tokyo Olympic Games.
"It’s very meaningful to receive the ‘special impact’ award from UK Sport. Whilst my name is attached to it, I accept it only as an acknowledgement of the power of sport in building relationships, bringing communities together and exploring skills adaptable for life. As a coach I get the majority of my learning from being around amazing people day in, day out, in the shape of athletes. Great people, great paddlers and alongside us at every step is a vast network of skilled, compassionate people committed to understanding the person and using that understanding to explore performance,” said Craig Morris.
