 As a high performance director, it was most important that we surround our teams with the best people to ensure success.

What would a medal performance by one of your athletes mean to you as a coach?
It would be great but more importantly is that the teams qualify for Rio by finishing ahead of the USA for men and Cuba for women.

Preparation is the key to success.

Never be a child's last coach. With all the pressure to win it is always more important that the process is enjoyable.
