Dr. Andy Walshe is Head of the Red Bull High Performance program. He collaborates with hundreds of elite athletes and industry-leading experts to develop and implement performance models. Walshe’s ultimate goal is to share learnings with the world to elevate human potential. Walshe’s skill for quantifying excellence and “de-mystifying talent” led to an appointment of High Performance Director for Red Bull Stratos where he prepped Felix Baumgartner for his record-breaking jump from the stratosphere. Prior to Red Bull, he was helping the U.S. Olympic ski team hit their performance targets as their High Performance Director until 2007. A native Australian, Walshe has a Ph.D. in Applied Biomechanics from Southern Cross University and holds a seat on the Information Science and Technology (ISAT) advisory board for DARPA.
