Michael Cavendish
about the preparation of UK athletes in Algarve

Michael Cavendish is Paralympic Performance Programme Manager at UK Athletics, member of the team organizing the Olympic stage

Were you satisfied with the sport infra-structures of Vila Real de Sto Antonio?
[Michael Cavendish] Yes, the facilities were great and Felipe could not have been more helpful. We would have preferred to have been able to stage all athletes at the VRSA track, but unfortunately the re-laid track was far too soft and we had no alternative but to use the Mondo track in Ayamonte. The additional seated throwing areas that had been installed were a great use to us, and allowed all of our throwers to repair at the same time. Sports Centre and Laranja Tours staff were also a great help in ensuring that we always had access to the track in Ayamonte when we needed it - our wheelchair track athletes won 8 medals (7 gold) in London so this was clearly very important to us.

Did you find the climate and enviroment helpful?
[Michael Cavendish] The overall environment of the camp was perfect. The Hotel and their guests, as well as both tracks were relaxing and secluded from the British media and our athletes' friends/families. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the hotel staff were really excellent in ensuring that our athletes and staff could remain relaxed and prepare properly. The food and accommodation were both also outstanding. The weather was perhaps almost too hot at times during the Paralympic camp - though of course there was nothing you or your colleagues could have done about this!
