Ron Needs has been awarded the Mussabini Medal for coaching. The Mussabini Medal recognises the contribution of coaches of UK performers who have achieved outstanding success on the world stage. In Ron’s case, this related to his involvement with the GB Women’s Eight. The eight surpassed all expectations at the 2005 World Championships, by coming 5th in the Final, only 3 seconds behind the winners, Australia.
