LockerRoom Story: Case Study - Rushlee Buchanan

The transition from successful high performance athlete to rookie coach was a big challenge for three time Cycling Olympian and four time world champion medalist, Rushlee Buchanan.

But Rushlee credits High Performance Sport NZ’s Te Hāpaitanga programme, the 18-month programme designed to enable more New Zealand women to pursue a career in high performance coaching, with helping her overcome her initial reservations about a post athlete career in coaching.

Rushlee talked with LockerRoom’s editor, Suzanne McFadden, about the journey which has made her discover her love of coaching.
