Seven years of Verite Sport

It is seven years this month since I left Christians in Sport and formed Verite Sport and what an amazing seven years it has been. In 2006 I could never have believed the places I would find myself.

Guest of FIFA at two World Cups
Journalist at Olympics, paralympics and various world championships.
Togo Olympic Attache
Organizing an FA coaching course in Ukraine
Supporting girls’ football team in Togo
Basketball project in Kazakstan
Partners in Argentina

I am grateful to God who has opened so many doors for me, to all of you who have believed in me when my career might have been over and for the favour I have had from so many sports administrators, especially British Athletics.

Verite Sport exists to promote a Christian presence in sport and to help sportspeople believe in Jesus. Thanks to all who have walked with me these last 7 years.

Seven years in 50 images.
