Norman Brook addresses Olympic Success at Athletics South Africa’s National Coaching Symposium
Norman Brook delivered a talk at Athletics South Africa’s National Coaches Symposium in Bloemfontein on the 7th October 2016 addressing the question “What must South Africa’s approach be for developing athletes for the 2020 Olympic Games?”
Through the medal winning performances of Caster Semenya, Sunette Viljoen, Wayde van Niekerk, and Luvo Manyonga, South African athletics achieved its best ever medal tally at an Olympic Games. The federation is keen to build on this success and invited Brook to share his thoughts on what they need to do pursue success in 2020.
According to ASA president Aleck Skhosana the federation will be, “listening to different experiences as we seek to make it easier for each other to present an athlete ready for competition at all levels”.
