As part of the Belfast Boxing Strategy we have carried out a series of video podcasts over the last number of weeks. The focus of these talks has been mental health awareness and how highs and lows can happen in the sport but there always changes that can be made for the better.
We will release a video every Wednesday in the lead up to a very special webinar talk we will have at the end of March. (talk presenter will be reveled very soon).
We have spoken to some of our staff and High Performance athletes about their journey in the sport, asking a series of questions about the highs and lows of boxing. We hope to get more of our HP athletes covered in the coming weeks/months ahead.
We also tried to get an insight from the High Performance athletes about how their normal day to day life has been impacted during the pandemic and why there is light at the end of the tunnel in the lead up to return to full time boxing.
Here is a short promo video a quick watch to see who we have coming up over the next few weeks some top quality athletes.
