Team Leaders confirmed for Glasgow 2014

20 November 2013

Commonwealth Games England (CGE) have confirmed Alexei Evangulov will be Team Leader of the English divers at the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

A former international diver for Russia, Evangulov joined British Diving in 2008 after leading his home country to three silver and two bronze medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

Last year he was Team GB’s Diving Team Leader which saw the team enjoy one of their best ever Olympic Games where Tom Daley won 10m Platform bronze.

Evangulov joined Swimming team leader Dawn Peart - whose appointment was announced in June - as the 18 Team Leaders engaged in a development programme, designed to brief, develop, educate and update Team Leaders and support staff in order to ensure that they are prepared and equipped to achieve England’s goals in Glasgow next year.

As part of the Programme, Team Leaders have already attended workshops in Burton-upon-Trent, home of the world-renown coach development facilities at St. George’s Park, and Glasgow, where each Team Leader was able to meet competition managers and visit venues.

England Chef de Mission Jan Paterson said: “I am delighted to welcome such a high quality group of Team Leaders to Team England and look forward to working with each of them in the coming months.

“I must thank our NGBs for their assistance in the recruitment process, all of whom have been hugely helpful. We have a very strong team made up of both familiar and new faces; a team that will work hard to help us achieve our ambitions.”
