James Gaukroger - Digital Content Lead
What attracted you to working for RLWC2021?
I love working on events and the fast-paced nature of applying my skills to their delivery. What better way to do this than work on the biggest sporting tournament in the country in 2021, delivering an impactful digital output to a worldwide audience and grow the sport.
Having grown up watching and playing rugby league in secondary school, I can't wait to get involved with the passionate community, telling the amazing stories of volunteers, fans and teams alike.
What is your favourite sporting memory?
Having worked in cycling for the past two years, I have had the privilege of standing on the finish line and watching the conclusion of races at all levels from World Championships to National Series'.
From watching Laura Kenny and Katie Archibald winning the madison at the Lee Valley Velodrome during the 2018 Track Cycling World Cup, to soaking up the atmosphere at the 2019 Road Cycling World Championships in Yorkshire, it's hard to choose a favourite.
