In this episode of MetCast, we chat to Jackie Newton, Manchester Met Exercise and Sports Science MA graduate. 

Jackie was Director of Coaching and Athlete Development for Athletics Northern Ireland going into this summer's Olympic and Paralympic Games, helping to prepare athletes for the biggest competition of their lives. She is now starting a new role as Head of Coaching Development for British Athletics. 

In this episode, recorded before the Olympics got underway, you'll hear everything from how Jackie's time at Manchester Met helped her to embrace a career in elite sport, to how she prepared for this summer and a competition like no other.
