we’ve never had it so good

Aussie Jessica Hull stormed to the NCAA 1500m title in June While many athletics aficionados look back with fondness at the golden era of Clarke and Elliott in Australia and Snell and Walker in New Zealand, the current crop of middle and long-distance runners are hinting that they too have the potential to usher in a potential golden age.From Rabat to Stockholm and Tampere to Eugene, Aussie athletes in recent months have been making a genuine impact of the international stage. Leading the way has been Linden Hall who lowered Sarah Jamieson’s 12-year-old national 1500m record by 0.07 in Eugene in May. Meanwhile, the progress of the Nic Bideau-coached Stewart McSweyn has been nothing short of sensational as the versatile Commonwealth 5000m and 10,000m finalist advanced to number…

coaching considerations

As a serious athlete, the runner-coach relationship can be one of the most important and close partnerships (just don’t tell your other half). Because when you are committed to training and racing, much of your lifestyle, routine and thoughts revolve around running (which is often accompanied by questions and doubts). This is why a coach is so important, as every runner needs a knowledgeable and experienced sounding board they trust implicitly to guide them. Even the best runners in the world doubt themselves and worry about their training/eating/sleeping/racing (trust me - I’ve seen first-hand an Olympic gold medalist act like a worried child in front of their coach).Having recently started my own junior coaching business, the role of a running coach has loomed large in my mind.

australasian performances on the european circuit

Monaco has always proved a happy hunting ground for Nick Willis, especially in 2014 10 Nick Willis – Barrier breaker During an incredibly long career, Nick Willis has for many years measured himself up against the world’s best with great success. A winner of a brace of Olympic 1500m medals and a three-time Commonwealth Games medallist, there is little in the sport the Kiwi had not achieved. Yet at the Monaco Diamond League, Willis let out a scream of jubilation for something he achieved without the yardstick of others. That night Willis achieved a lifelong ambition of a sub 3:30 1500m, recording 3:29:91. The New Zealander returned to Monaco 12 months later and ran an Oceania record 3:29.66, but few moments can match that high of…

Peter Bol After the many highs of the Commonwealth Games, Australian endurance running has continued to shine, if not surpass the achievements in the Gold Coast with a series of outstanding performances in the northern hemisphere summer.Men’s 800m running is flying at the moment with Peter Bol and Joseph Deng significantly altering the all-time Australian lists with one outstanding display at the Stockholm Diamond League. The more experienced Bol led home Deng in a stunning one-two, with Bol elevating himself to fourth on the all-time Australian list with a 1:44.56 and Deng sitting number five just 0.05 adrift.The performance came tantalisingly close to the national record of 1:44.40 shared by 1968 Olympic 800m champion Ralph Doubell and Alex Rowe and offered genuine hope the longstanding mark is vulnerable.…

no bugles no lungs

The air rushes hard against my lungs as I emit gutteral winces of pain. Only 50 to go, third hill rep up Burwood Road, and soon I’ll be hitting the entrance to Scouthall Road. As I hit atop the rise and stagger off to the left into Scouthall, I imagine myself in Peter Snell’s shoes, majestic, powerful, striding up the hills of Auckland as the colossus he was, and then I reflect on my own effort to emulate him - subconsciously at least, for I feel barely conscious. But I know he is there by my side.While Snell continues with his recovery jog at the top of the hill I let him go. Legs astride, hands on knees, bent over sucking in the big ones I gradually regain awareness…
