Greg Whyte named in Top 10 ‘Science Communicators’
Member organisations and other partners were invited to nominate individuals for each of the categories of ’10 types of scientist’ identifying individuals who are currently engaged with UK science that other scientists might look to for leadership in their sector or career. The Science Council was seeking to identify individual scientists who illustrated a commitment to the practice of science with integrity, who exercised professional skill and judgement in their work, and also contributed to their profession and the future of their subject through their leadership, for example through development of standards or best practice, supporting their professional body, volunteering or mentoring.
Greg was recognised for ‘raising the public profile of sport science through Comic Relief having trained and coached a number of celebrities in the completion of arduous sporting tasks including fellow Olympian James Cracknell’s run, cycle and swim to Africa and comedian Eddie Izzard’s challenge to run 43 Marathons in 51 days. He is a Fellow of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Science.’
