On Wednesday 5th October, as part of a visit to the Olympic Legacy Park, the largest Olympic Legacy project outside London, Lord Sebastian Coe, former athlete and IAAF President, visited Sheffield’s second UTC: UTC Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park.

On arrival Lord Coe was met by Executive Principal Nick Crew and Principal Sarah Clark and welcomed to the college before being shown around the brand new state-of-the-art sports facilities. In the Sports facilities he met and spoke with a number of Sport Science students, many of whom are accomplished trainee athletes themselves or are pursuing careers in sports coaching or physiotherapy. Demonstrating their agility and reaction skills on the Batak machines, students explained to Lord Coe why they had chosen to come to UTC, saying they felt it gave them more practical opportunities and job prospects for the future.

Lord Coe then took a short tour around the £10 million campus, visiting the computing and health facilities before reaching the science terrace that overlooks the rest of the Olympic Legacy Park. The park will soon be home to a professional rugby pitch, basketball stadium, the Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, as well as a number of community spaces.

Before departing Lord Coe wrote in the guestbook, ‘Thank you for a wonderful visit, it’s a magnificent story and part of an extraordinary journey for Sheffield through Sport.’

Commenting on the visit, Principal Sarah Clark said, ‘The UTC is working with employers to provide a lasting legacy for the next generation by preparing young people for great careers in the healthcare and sports science, and computing sectors. We were delighted to meet Lord Coe and showcase our exciting £10 million new building and facilities.’
