I just don't get where this idea that everyone is being forced to Loughborough comes from, if you look at the UK team or funded athletes the truth just doesn't match up to this proposition. Loughborough has the best facilities in the country and there are several full time coaches there. It isn't surprising that SOME athletes may choose to locate there, surely it really is that simple.
Completely agree there BG. Remember that James has recently hada shoulder op so access to excellent med facilities could have swayed. He also has the chance to now train with a group of hardworking jav throwers in some great facilities. I am sure that Mick will still be his coach, and knowing ESA he is not one to poach athletes.
After all it is Olympic year on home soil so athletes need to do what is right for them.
