Ruth Owen-Evans has 13 years experience in the sports industry, both as an athlete and a professional.
As an athlete, Ruth competed at two Mountain Bike World Cup events, and in 2018, achieved a silver medal at the Cross Triathlon World Championships in Denmark. She is also a Level 2 Mountain Bike Coach.
As a sports professional, Ruth holds qualifications in teaching, mentoring, anti-doping, mental health and suicide first aid. She has worked in athlete wellbeing in both Australia and the UK, most recently as the Athlete Wellbeing & Engagement Coordinator for the Australian Wheelchair Basketball program and the ACT Academy of Sport.
Ruth understands the needs, conflicts and pressures of being an elite athlete and enjoys supporting athletes of all levels to overcome lifestyle and wellbeing challenges.
“I am passionate about sport and working with people who want to push themselves and be the best version of themselves.”
“I also love being part of the progress that athletes make when they take control of their life outside of sport and believe in the value they can offer outside their athletic career,” she says.
Ruth feels The Athlete Advantage’s strength lies in its experienced coaches and mentors, as well as the valuable and relevant resources that athletes can apply in all areas of their lives.
“The Program gives athletes real power to drive change, now and into the future,” she says.
