Recognizing Potential Stardom

first_imgAs a coach, there is something that you see in an athlete that leads you to believe you are coaching something special.  I’m sure that in the early stages of Michael Phelps and Katie Ledecky a coach knew that he/she was about to witness the start of a great athletic career.  It was at East Central in their Invitational that Chris Giesting showed that potential.  Taking the baton on a final leg of a 4 x 400m relay he was 50 yards behind the leading team.  Before his lap was finished, he not only caught this runner but passed him.  This was the first time he broke the 50 sec. barrier in the 400m.  Standing on the sideline I knew he was something special.  This year he just missed making our Olympic team.Katie Ledecky is just in the early stages of her career, but she already is 5 for 5 with gold medal swims. She is amazing in the fact that she can swim the freestyle from the 200m to 1500m.  The only time anyone is close to her is the 200m swims.  Otherwise, she not only wins but she annihilates them!  Will she stay around long enough to challenge the incredible feat of Michael Phelps?Michael Phelps, at the age of 31, says this was his last competitive swim.  No one in the world can challenge what he has done in the pool.  His 23 gold medals which is 14 more than his nearest competitor.  If you think this has been easy, just read his autobiography.  Even when you are that good, not everything comes easy.  Goodbye, Michael!last_img read more

Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho not content with just finishing above Arsenal

first_imgLONDON: Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho stated he isn’t content with just finishing over Arsenal in the Premier League table and reiterated his desire to help the club secure a place in next season’s Europa League. Spurs got the better of Arsenal in the London Derby 2-1 on Sunday and courtesy of that win, they now have two points more than Mikel Arteta’s troops and are placed at eighth spot compared to Gunners’ ninth. Mourinho said that finishing above Arsenal will hand bragging rights only to the fans. Historically, Arsenal have finished above Spurs more times in the league but in the last three years, the latter have turned out be the London club who have been on top at the end of the season. “That is a fan’s view. I have to be more ambitious than that,” Mourinho said during a news conference as per “I know I could look at in a selfish point of view and say since I arrived, if the championship started in that moment, even with all the problems we had I think we would now be fourth or fifth in the table. “I don’t want to be selfish, I don’t want to look at it just as a fan that is happy to finish above Arsenal,” he added. Mourinho also urged his players to continue the form and secure a place in next year’s Europa League. The last time Mourinho was part of a team in the Europa League, he took Manchester United to the title and thus helped them gain a position in the Champions League. “I would love to play Europa League. It is not a competition I am in love with, it is not a competition I would like very much to play, but when you cannot play Champions League you play Europa League,” Mourinho said.
