"Using the world-class facilities available on our own doorstep in the Mardyke Arena UCC will give me an edge over other athletes. Working out and training with the best coaches and the best equipment in the arena will help me get everything out of my career."

Marian Heffernan, Olympian and 400m Runner

"There is no way I would ever made the Great Britain team for the Olympic Games without the help and assistance of Jeff Gomez in the Mardyke Arena. It was a combination of his expertise and the use of the world-class training facilities in the Arena that allowed me to reach the level I needed to compete in the Olympics and I will be forever grateful to Jeff for working with me."

Rachael Vanderwal, Irish SuperLeague player of the year 2011 & 2012 and a member of the Great Britain Olympic Basketball Team 2012

"We wanted to make our Rebel Óg programme the best it could be, so we chose the Mardyke Arena UCC as here we get the best of both worlds - world class facilities and expert knowledge from the staff."

Brian Cuthbert, Chairman of Development Squad Committee, Cork GAA

"We are so lucky to have these excellent training facilities here in Cork. Everything you find when you go abroad for is here in terms of equipment, rehab, physios, nutrition and conditioning coaches."

Robert Heffernan, four-time Olympian

"The word proud is the one word that comes to my mind when you see the world-class State-of-the-art facilities here on our own doorstep in the Mardyke Arena UCC that are available for us to use."
