You say quite a few things in your recent post, some of which I agree with, some I don't. I do feel though that you have exagerated the position somewhat and would like to check that I have the facts correct.
You state that "half of the medalsit(sic) are coached and learned their trade overseas." when refering to CVC's reaction to the record medal haul at this year's World Indoor Championships. I disagree with your statement, however my understanding may be flawed and I would welcome correction on any that I have wrong.
Yamile Aldama (Lived in the UK for 11 years, trains under Frank Attoh at Barnet Copthall and also coaches there)
Women's 4x400m relay team;
Shana Cox (Raised in the States, since switching allegiance she has been part of Lloyd Cowan's training group and I believe she lives in London with her Grandmother)
Nicola Sanders (Tony Lester, Lee Valley)
Christine Ohuruogu (Lloyd Cowan, Lee Valley)
Perri Shakes-Drayton (Chris Zah, Mile End)
Jessica Ennis (Toni Minichiello)
Tiffany Porter (Raised and lives in the States for the majority of the year, spends the summer months in London, where she trains with Lloyd Cowan's group)
Men's 4x400m relay team;
Conrad Williams (Linford Christie, Brunel)
Nigel Levine (Linford Christie)
Michael Bingham (Kevin Tyler, Loughborough, previously based in the States, he has spent the autumn and winter of 2011/12 living and training in Lougborough)
Richard Buck (Kevin Tyler, Loughborough)
Holly Bleasdale (Julien Raffalli-Ebezant, Manchester)
Shara Proctor (Rana Reider, Daytona Beach Florida. Shara was born and raised in Anguilla, she lives and trains in the States with her traing group for most of the year, she spent last summer in Birmingham working with Aston Moore)
Dwain Chambers (Self coached, Lee Valley)
Andrew Osagie (Craig Winrow, St Mary's)
Of the 15 medal winning athletes I calculate that, using the most loose definition of "overseas", only one third (5) of them are currently coached overseas, or indeed learned their trade overseas. In fact, if we were to include those who have been UK based for the majority of the last twelve months as non-"overseas", that figure would drop to 2 of the 15 (Shara and Tiffany).
I suppose though, that if you are trying to make a point or maybe even fan the flames, then saying that two fifteenths of the medalists are overseas based athletes just doesnt have the same level of impact.
But that's just my opinion.
Did you notice that the Mail managed to forget to include the fact that T&C have no National Olympic Committee and therefore Delano can't compete for them at the Olympics? Unusual that, the Mail normally present such a balanced picture!
On a personal level, I would have no issue with Delano competing for Turks and Caicos at the World Juniors and then, if he achieves the qualification, Great Britain at the Olympics. If he was to then qualify for, and accept funding from UKA, I would expect him to compete exclusively for GB & NI.
Again, just my opinion.
