Fiona and myself have just attended a coaching conference with the head coaches of the USA Track and Field team (Amy Deem and Andrew Valmon). 110m hurdler and world leader this year, Aries Merritt was also on the panel; telling us some of the secrets as to why he is so good. It was an insightful evening. Thanks to the organisers and the Americans for giving up their time. I’ll also now be cheering on Aries as well as team GB!
