S&C Coach

Mike Muckelt officially joined the BBSA as Strength & Conditioning Coach for the British Skeleton programme in the spring of 2022.

Mike had been working with the squad as a contractor since the winter of 2021, having also spent time with British Swimming during that period, but his first involvement with British Skeleton dates back to November 2020 when he began a PhD in Biomechanics focusing on understanding the technical requirements of the push start.

Mike’s role sees him work with the full British Skeleton squad during the spring and summer months, before heading out on circuit with the team during the winter season. Employed through the English Institute of Sport, Mike works solely with British Skeleton.

An MSci graduate in Sport and Exercise Science at the University of Bath, Mike was previously S&C coach for Team Bath, working across athletics, football, swimming and tennis.

He participated in a number of sports growing up, before competing nationally as a javelin thrower.
