The US Olympic Sailing Team has had a bad week. After Greg Fisher resigned as Chief Operating Officer of Olympic Sailing, news now comes from US Sailing that another key member of management is gone. Here is the US Sailing statement:
Bristol, RI (September 19, 2019) – US Sailing and Malcolm Page, Chief of Olympic Sailing, announced that they have agreed to part ways. Page will be leaving US Sailing and returning to his home in Australia. He will be working with US Sailing Team staff and coaches on transition activities through the end of October, 2019.
US Sailing would like to thank Malcolm for his two and a half years of service to the organization and for his role in the preparation of the US Sailing Team for the 2020 Games. Malcolm played an integral role connecting the sailing public to the Team and Olympic sailing, and in fostering relationships around the industry to support our program and the athletes. As a respected sailing industry professional, we wish Malcolm the best in his future endeavors.
Moving forward, US Sailing will enhance our focus on athlete-centric investment and resources in preparation for Tokyo 2020. Jack Gierhart, CEO of US Sailing, will be directing a strong and competent leadership team and staff at US Sailing to support the organization through this transition.
We will remain focused on the 2020 Games with unwavering commitment to the athletes and the Olympic Development Program, as well as the advancement of a long-term strategy and improved performance objectives that will support our 2024 and 2028 Olympic sailing goals and aspirations for success on the international stage.
