Episode 2: Richard Husseiny

Rich HusseinyIn this second episode comes the first of many interviews!  Kicking off the official launch of the World-Class Coaching Podcast is Richard Husseiny.

Rich has most recently been working for EXOS based in China with their Olympic teams for over 2 years.  prior to that he was working for the EIS with British Diving on the build up to London 2012.

I’m sure you’ll find what he has to say very insightful, especially regarding influencing foreign cultures and working with ACL rehabilitation.
