    "I wouldn't be where I am without the support my parents give me...They've fed me with belief and have spent the last 8 years driving me up and down the country to meets and training to help me turn my dreams into a reality! It's important they get support too so they know how important they are in our journeys and can continue to help us along the way, theathleteplace offers exactly that".

Hi! 👋  I’m Joe Fuggle, former GBJ 400m hurdler and founder of theathleteplace.

I have been involved in high-level athletics for 10+ years and am now using my experience, knowledge and passion for helping others to create a platform that supports athletes and parents in track & field athletics.

Despite being relatively successful on the track, I still struggled with sport-related mental health issues that ultimately forced me out of athletics. But without these, I would never have started theathleteplace. I now share my experiences to help others on their athletics journeys... I’d love to help you on yours!
