November 9, 2017

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to Director of Performance & Sports Science at the University of Oregon, Andrew Murray.

With Andrew having such a diverse background across 3 continents and 3 massively different cultures, naturally, we dive into how he dealt with that as well as the language barrier and how he communicated with coaching staff, colleagues and athletes.

In this episode, you will learn -

  • Who is Andrew Murray (background, education and current role)
  • Measuring impact of a sports scientist
    • Auditing provision (what are the questions we want to ask...)
  • Managing & maximising multiple data streams
    • does it affect the scoreboard...
  • The art of communication
  • Managing student-athletes
    • getting the best of both worlds
