    Think back to the 3000m Steeplechase at last summer’s Athens Olympics. There Kenya won their only gold medal and celebrated their first medal clean sweep since Barcelona 1992. Ezekiel Kemboi benefiting from the absence of Kenyan born Qatari Saif Saaeed Shaheen obtained the Olympic victory but who was second in the race? It was a 19 year-old boy by the name of Brimin Kipruto, an athlete who was in his first international season, the crown prince of the event.

    O’Connell organises two training camps during the school holidays. That is when he first became familiar with a proper training system, training three times a day. 😯

    the new article on quality vs. quantity takes on a slightly different feel when you realize that there are people who believe that “proper” training is so far beyond that discussion….

    Especially when you realize that the people with that perspective are the most successful in the world.
