Post-Games shake-up for AA

Athletics Australia is to undergo a major overhaul after the London Olympics that will include the role of national high-performance manager Eric Hollingsworth, The Australian has learned.

The review will be carried out by AA chief executive Dallas O'Brien, who will report back to directors before the sport's annual meeting in November.

"It is part of a strategic look at all aspects of the sport, including the high-performance area, which is one of athletics' key pillars," O'Brien said.

"We've already implemented a number of changes, including the recent appointment of a participation manager."

O'Brien last night confirmed the strategic review included looking at splitting the high-performance manager's role currently filled by Hollingsworth into two distinct and separate roles of coaching and finance.
