I refer to the high performance unit. Billy Walsh left it in 2016 and cited at the time that the IABA wanted to have control over team selection and finances etc. and that this was the reason his contract fell through and he went to USA to join the team there. Some might argue that we risk losing another very successful high performance director over the same issues. Who selects teams at high performance level? Is it the director of the high performance unit, HPU, or are others involved?
