Play-Ex Ambassador, Ben Ryan
Ben Ryan is considered the most successful rugby sevens coach of all time, having won Continental, World and Olympic titles.
Winning from the word go
After graduating from Loughborough University, Ben went into teaching, then became a rugby coach, and here’s where things really took off.
Ben rose through the ranks pretty quickly, and was made Head Coach of England Rugby Sevens in 2007. He took that team to the World Rugby Cup Sevens final in 2013.
Then three years later, he led the Fijian sevens rugby team to Gold at the Rio Olympics 2016. These days Ben has stepped back from the front line of international sport, but he’s still getting the very best out of individuals and teams alike.
Creating the conditions for success
Sports science has helped athletes to push their performance to the limit, but there’s less help available when it comes to challenges beyond the field of play.
Play-Ex tackles this issue head-on, by providing trusted, secure access to the services athletes need in order to build security in their professional and private lives.
Ben has first-hand experience of the many challenges that are part and parcel of the elite athlete’s life. He brings this awareness and his unparalleled expertise to the Play-Ex platform through his role as brand ambassador.
