Weightlifting Ireland will host an exclusive seminar with Billy Walsh, the Head Coach at USA Boxing, on Saturday 20th February at 11am.
Billy Walsh was an Olympian at the 1988 Seoul Olympics and later transitioned into coaching.
As head coach Billy was instrumental in developing the high-performance culture at the IABA that developed talents like Katie Taylor, Michael Conlan, John Joe Nevin, Padding Barnes and Joe Ward into world beaters.
Walsh was Irish Boxing Head Coach at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games where Ireland’s boxers won three medals (1 Silver and 2 x Bronze) and at the 2012 London Olympics where Irish boxers won 4 medals (1 x Gold, 1 x Silver and 2 x Bronze).
Billy left Irish Boxing in 2015 for USA Boxing. Initially taking up the role of the Women’s Head Coach, Walsh went on to lead both men’s and women’s teams to a successful 2016 Olympics, with USA Boxing winning 3 Olympic medals.
At the 2012 Olympic Games no male boxer from the USA won an Olympic medal, the first time this had happened. USA until this point had won the most medals in boxing at the Olympics of any nation. In 2016 under Walsh’s guidance 2 US men’s boxers won medals, a phenomenal turnaround after just 9 months in charge.
This Saturday Billy will talk about his experience developing high-performance teams from the ground up and how to make a difference with little resources. This will be a must see and is available FREE of charge for current Weightlifting Ireland coaches and athletes.
