Professor Craig Sharp

Professor Craig Sharp

It is with great sadness, that BASEM has learned of the passing of Professor Craig Sharp.  Craig lectured with BASEM on the Foundation Skills course for many years and was the recipient of the Sir Roger Bannister Award in 2009 recognising a lifetime's outstanding contribution to the field of Sport and Exercise Medicine. 

For those that knew him he will be an enormous loss but we can reflect that our lives have been richer for being so privileged to know him.  He was a unique and outstanding gentleman and the world especially that of sport and exercise medicine will be poorer for his loss.

Sadly, we have lost two unique and well respected members this month.  A tribute to both Professor Sharp and Sir Roger Bannister will be published in the next issue of BASEM Today.
