Key position

Recently-appointed Ipswich & District Athletics Club president Bailey Pashley.

Age: 72.

Coaching and teaching experience: More than 50 years, including many stints as a school principal and level 5 coach.

Involved in athletics club scene (Sunshine Coast and Ipswich) since 1972.

HAVING coached some of the region's leading athletes, Bailey Pashley likes to focus on what he calls the cycle of success.

His work mentoring athletes is based on potential, action, results and belief.

C[pounds sterling]My approach is to bring the best out in them through enjoyment and believing in themselves,C[yen] Pashley said.

One of his best achievers was Damian Mednis, who Pashley coached to national level in the 1980s before the former St Edmund's student applied his skills to national and international teams.

The former high jumper is strength and conditioning co-ordinator for the Queensland Bulls after similar rugby roles with the Queensland Reds and overseas with Munster.

Having a long association with Ipswich athletics, Pashley is now focusing on the future.

He recently accepted the presidency for the first time, eager to help one of the region's premier sporting organisations prepare for the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

After next month's annual Ipswich Winter Carnival, Pashley will devote his short-term energies to a five-year plan, largely focusing on development.

C[pounds sterling]The other thing I want us coaches to do is to look at our athletes in line for selection in those Commonwealth Games,C[yen] Pashley said.

He wants to provide extra opportunities for athletes as young as 14 to further their prospects of representing Australia.
