Level 3 Extended Diploma in Sport (Performance and Excellence)
BSc (Hons) Sport Business Management
Job title: Freelance sports commentator
“I commentate on motorsport and handball. I used to drive competitively as a hobby and I represented Great Britain in handball at junior level while I was a Reaseheath student so I have good knowledge of both. You need to know the inside track on athletes to talk confidently about them.
“I mainly commentate for Alpha Live, which broadcasts live streaming from motorsport and other sporting championships. It’s a great way to be involved at an elite level and I aspire to become an F1 commentator. I’m also a main commentator for esport sim (simulated) racing, which I love because I’m a keen gamer.
“My Reaseheath course gave me a wider understanding of the sport sector, plus skills and confidence which have helped me to succeed.”
