Re: UKA Poaching Again!!

Why am I not surprised, Geoff et-al! The situation of what has been termed "institutionalised poaching" has been going on for years. The imposition of the so-called "Transfer" system by U.KA and certain of its predecessors has been a disaster leading to the destruction of many so...

Re: Greg Rutherford Fan Interview, Any Questions ?

If you had stayed with Tom McNab as your coach, how successful do you think you would have been?

Re: British Athletics Coaching and Club Survey

Thank you Geoff! A rather generalised survey, but I appreciated the opportunity to give some feed back on matters affecting coaching-hopefully these will be fed back yo the powers that be. Re the advert, I wonder how long such a SERIOUSLY-FLAWED system (i.e.365) is gong to be advocated, it needs scr...

Re: Jessica Ennis-Hill calls for more female coaches in athl

In my 50 years association with athletics, I also have NEVER seen a male coach belittling a female one (or incidentally in other sports)-yet I have seen several instances of encouragement and help.

Re: Jessica Ennis-Hill calls for more female coaches in athl

Spot on coaches-ten-events. The coach-education structure,content,delivery and cost needs to be put under a radically -focussed microscope, operated by highly-experienced coaches. Also expensive schemes such as the seriously-flawed 365 need to be scrapped quickly.

Re: New BA 'Head of Power'

Interesting title. I wonder what the head of the jumps and throws is to be called- HEAD OF STRENGTH (mainly maximum and plyometric?) Having written this I have heard good reports of him from North of the border sources. I do hope that encouragement, experiential opportunities, and support are given ...

Re: Luke Cutts New UK record 5.83

Well done to coach and athlete-perhaps the UK/BA powers that be might consider rewarding Mr Fox, with a degree of support-and how about Julian Raffelli as well?

Re: High Jump Techniques of Yesteryear!

Great to see these old pictures. I think that VALERIY BRUMEL straddled 2.28 in 1963, and Pat Matzdorf 2.29 as late as 1971) before the first official Fosbury world record (Dwight Stones-2.30 1973) Interestingly, at least 2 athletes went over on their back (i.e. belly- up parallel to the bar) Clinton...

Re: Independent Coaching Association

Peter Stanley "inherited" Jonathon Edwards from his original coach CARL JOHNSON--who had taken Edwards from around 15metres to well over 17metres, before they parted company. Johnson is the coach deserving of the major credit in Edward's success-not Stanley.

Re: Athletes on the move

tracktsyles, I am not sure how many people think that the "escort" system is the "ideal coaching model"-I certainly don't, but would support and glory in it 100% where it occurs, and I don't agree that the concept is the enemy of an efficient system. If an ambitious club coach br...

Re: Athletes on the move

Helen's post made me angry. Her husband's contribution to the pole-vault has been immense. I do not believe that U.K.A could not have found the money to part-finance him- (and a few others in events where you are more likely to walk down Oxford street and bump into a Tibetan on a Yak, then meet a to...

Frank was very much an original, his contribution to middle-distance and athletics in general was immense. My condolences to his family and close friends.
