For an intensive 8 days on the Gold Coast in November 2016, Steve joined 11 other experienced and eager coaches at the Level IV IAAF Coaching course for Sprints, Hurdles and Relays. Under the guidance of Sharon & Peter Hannan, the magical coaches behind Sally Pearson’s journey to Olympic Gold, there were endless high level discussions on how to optimise our knowledge and benefit as coaches.
We were lucky to have Adam Larcom, Olympic Relay Coach, participating in the course and offering an insight to the successes of our 4x400m womens team in Rio. We were also joined by our international guest from Italy, Andrea Uberti, who offered some great ideas from a european perspective.
Now back in Melbourne, Steve is busy applying his new knowledge to his weekly training squads and all athletes he coaches.
