Drawing a Straight Line

I am not proposing you ignore anything. I know those athletes were the best in their country; I was in Colorado Springs when they broke all the National Records in 82 & 83. Look closer at the message. I am amazed that people keep seeking the secret and the Holy Grail. What got his best athlete from 10.1 to 9.86 – look at the change in physical development. That was not a normal performance curve. Why not study drug free coaches like Esa Peltola or a Gary Winkler who has consistently produced over the years with lesser quality athletes. None of the ideas are revolutionary. Take away the drugs and what do you have. You can massage until the cows come home, but without the juice you cannot recover from the high intensity work. Someone mentioned Korchemy that is another good example, without drugs look and see what his people were running - sloow. We must isolate the drug coaches, not give them credence or recognition. You can get fast without drugs, it takes a lot longer and there is very little margin of error.

I'm not sure if we are looking for anything other than a joined up philosophy. Gary is a nice guy who has spoken in Canada several times and in that respect we have been able to study him and if you have any say in the matter please encourage him to spend more time lecturing. However, by studying Gary you would indirectly be studying the person you wish to stop promoting. If you don't know why then ask Gary yourself (1982-83). Like it or not thier legacy lives on and the sport has paid dearly for it.

Best wishes.
