Seb Coe and Peter Eriksson will be amongst those speaking at the forth coming International Festival of Athletics Coaching (IFAC) to be held in Glasgow on the weekend of 30 October- 1 November.

Performance Director of the UKA Paralympic Programme Peter Eriksson, who took up his post at UKA in early 2009 following a successful career identifying talent and creating world champions in Canada, will give an insight into his specialist subject to sub group audiences.

While Vice President of the IAAF Coe, who led the successful London 2012 bid, will feature as a guest speaker at the Friday night Gala Dinner as well as appearing on stage with Wilson Kipketer during the weekend.

Commenting on his involvement, Coe said: "I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak to coaches at the International Festival. They are the architects and organisers of performance excellence in the arena. Of course they prepare athletes for the sport, but, more importantly, they prepare athletes through the sport to live a better life and build a better world. I'm really looking forward to meeting you in Glasgow."

Festival Manager, Ewen Cameron added: “It is with great pleasure that we can confirm that Seb will join us in Glasgow for the International Festival. He is one of the finest athletes to have ever represented Great Britain and we are thrilled to have him as part of the weekend. His successful leadership of the London 2012 bid has inspired the British nation of and I am sure his involvement in the Festival will also inspire the coach delegates in attendance.”
