Senior Aussies

Filed Under:

I'm off to the Aussies again

Tomorrow morning I'm driving to Adelaide to coach as part of the Victorian team at the Senior Australian track titles. It's game time after a year's preparation.

No live TV this time, but hilights will be on SBS. A significant percentage of the Victorian sprint team have, at some point, been coached by me and are now coached by Hilton or myself (Emily, James, John, Jaegan). Almost the entire Victorian sprint team has been through Hilton's squad. We're very proud of these sprinters. Medals or no, I know they will all do the best the possibly can, and that's the thing.

While I'm away, Brit Jackson will be doing the Vic junior track titles, go Brit!

But you can see it online ...

I'm stoked, Cereal Killers' screening at the (ironically!) Jam Factory this Friday is now sold out. 

You can see it online though ..

Cereal Killers


The film follows Donal – a lean, fit, seemingly healthy 41 year old man – on a quest to hack his genes and drop dead healthy by avoiding the heart disease and diabetes that has afflicted his family.

Donal’s father Kevin, an Irish gaelic football star from the 1960s, won the first of 2 All Ireland Championships with the Down Senior Football Team in 1960 before the biggest crowd (94,000) ever seen at an Irish sporting event.

When Kevin suffered a heart attack later in life, family and friends were shocked. How does a lean, fit and seemingly healthy man – who has sailed through cardiac stress tests – suddenly fall victim to heart disease?

Can a controversial diet consisting of 70% fat provide the answers?



Come see my film!

Well, I helped kickstart it anyway ...

Get on it!  Ironically, it's at the Jam Factory!


Modern nutrition

And the old school

The "old school" of nutrition isn't really old school, it's middle school, but I digress.  Read this :


Bring on 2014

2013 was full of frustration ...

A lot of interesting, but confidential, stuff happened in 2013 with me, in terms of career development.  I got to spend a week embedded with the AIS sprint program, which was great (the big secret : there is no big secret, it's just consistant, specific, hard work).  2014 is going to see some big changes, which will be .. big!  We don't know what they'll be yet.  Sorry for the ambiguity, but I can't say any more at this time except that the VIS has a new cycling head coach coming (Glenn Doney from ACTAS) in mid February, and there's other irons in the fire.  We're in limbo until February, but to keep me busy and out of mischief,  I'm off to Adelaide for the Senior Aussies in 4 weeks.

Limbo ... sucks!  But hopefully it will be over soon.
