    Hs has a very interesting article on his new blog about issues facing athletes trying to progress from junior to senior success.

    A very well considered and written article. It suggests a deep thinking, articulate and intelligent young man and if he doesn’t succeed in his chosen events, though I believe he has great potential, he might find other doors open for him very readily if he continues with this kind of analysis…

    Thanks for posting the article, Occasional Hope.

    I agree with Carterhatch that OJ makes some valid observations, and certainly has his head screwed on.

    The one thing that stood out to me was the need to be insular. Great athletes like Coe , Ovett, Cram, Thompson, etc etc very much did things their own way. They had their own micro team around them, made their own plans and executed them.

    Particularly with sprinters almost forced into ‘Centre of Excellence’ training groups I can see how they can lose their own individual perspective and way of doing things. One ‘fix-all’ method will not suit everybody.

    (I’m probably talking out of my backside)……

    Great start indoors for OJ. 6-61 and 6-58 on the same day at Lee Valley.
    He might dethrone Richard Kilty indoors this year.

    Certainly promising for the 100m.

    Kilty seems on normal sort of schedule with Dusseldorf and Madrid next week.
