Reflecting on the success of Marginal Gains in Sports & Business at Wales Week London

Reflecting on the success of Marginal Gains in Sports & Business at Wales Week London

The Welsh Sports Association (WSA) and member organisation Swim Wales hosted our dynamic and insightful Wales Week London event, Marginal Gains in Sports and Business, on Tuesday 27 February.

Held at the Queen Mother Sports Centre in Pimlico, London, the event proved to be a resounding success, drawing together a diverse audience to explore marginal gains in sport and business.

The CEO of the WSA, Andrew Howard, and the CEO of Swim Wales, Fergus Feeney, engaged the room in a collaborative discussion.

They shed light on the significance of the WSA’s collective voice, and its ability to reduce costs and improve efficiencies across the sector.

As a valued member of the WSA, Fergus Feeney highlighted areas where the WSA supported Swim Wales specifically, and went on to detail the significant impact his organisation is having across Aquatics in Wales, not only from a community standpoint, but from an elite one too. 

The two leaders underscored the significance of collaboration and knowledge sharing in maximising the impact of marginal gains.

The highlight of the event was the presence of 2018 Commonwealth Butterfly Champion, Alys Thomas, and the 2014 Commonwealth Backstroke Champion, Georgia Davies.

Their firsthand accounts of leveraging marginal gains to achieve success captivated the audience. A brief clip below sheds some light on the power of preparation & marginal gains in sport at the very highest level.

Marginal Gains in Sports & Business proved to be a truly enriching experience, offering attendees a rare glimpse into the strategies and mindsets of those who have reached the pinnacle of success.

As the event came to a close, participants networked and discussed new insights and perspectives to apply in their own endeavours.

The WSA extend their gratitude to our friends and colleagues at Swim Wales for collaborating on such an engaging event, our athletes Alys and Georgia, our colleagues at Everyone Active for the hospitality at the Queen Mother Sports Centre, and the attendees for making the event a memorable and impactful occasion. 

The WSA and Swim Wales welcome over 60 new business partners from Wales Week London into the network and will look to collaborate with these partners moving forward to further enhance, support, and promote the sport and leisure sector in Wales.
