Olympic 1500m silver medallist Timothy Cheruiyot has been invited to talk at the British Milers’ Club event that will be held at Leeds Beckett University on Sunday November 14, 2021.
Cheruiyot who is the World 1500m champion will tag along his Rongai Athletics Club (RAC) coach Bernard Ouma and they will give the talk on European Endurance Conference.
The 25 year-old will talk about the secrets of his success at a British Milers’ Club (BMC) coaching day.
Neville Taylor, one of the BMC coaches organising the day, says: “We have put together a great programme with UK and overseas presenters. “We see it has a benefit to both coaches and athletes and it forms part of the BMC’s coach education strategy. “Apart from a full day of presentations there are two practical training sessions with international coaches and major championship medallists.”
The day, which is supported by England Athletics at the university’s Headingley Campus, begins with an introduction from Tim Brennan and a talk from Norman Poole on “aspects of the 800m”. James Thie will then give a lecture entitled “The Coach!” before an 11am practical session led by David Lowes, Andy Henderson and Mark Vile.
After lunch Cheruiyot and Ouma will speak with Geoff Wightman in front of the audience.
Thie will then interview Andy Young, the coach of Laura Muir and Jemma Reekie, before another practical session involving Becky Lyne and Marilyn Okoro as they explain their “Gracefull Running” philosophy.
