He is regarded as one of the most renowned speed and sports performance coaches in the world and one of the leading experts of applied sports science for today's high performance athlete.


Seagrave will join former Great Britain team coach David Sunderland and Commonwealth Games medallist Robert Weir who will lead the endurance and throws workshops respectively, in addition to keynote speakers Clyde Hart, Yannick Tregaro, Zhong Bingshu and Ken Porter.
