Performance Director (Skeleton)

Natalie Dunman joined the BBSA as Interim Performance Director for British Skeleton in September 2018 and was appointed to the role on a permanent basis a year later.

Natalie heads up the World Class Performance Programme and is responsible for leading the team towards what we hope will be more medal success at the next Olympic Winter Games in Beijing in 2022.

Natalie initially moved to the BBSA on a secondment from UK Sport, where she had been Head of Performance Pathways since October 2013.

Formerly Lead Talent Scientist at the English Institute of Sport, Natalie's role with UK Sport has seen her tasked with supporting sports to build world leading pathway programmes, as well as developing cutting edge initiatives in athlete development and progression, to ensure the country’s continued success at future Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Prior to joining the BBSA, Natalie worked with the Skeleton programme at various times over the past decade, including designing and delivering the talent identification programme that discovered Olympic medalists Lizzy Yarnold and Laura Deas.
