Last night Clay Watkins and I had our final training session together. We have now parted company.

I'm not bitter nor devastated. Disappointed yes, as I felt there was a lot of unfinished business, but after a week of thinking about it, I realised there was nothing I could do or say to convince him otherwise and better he left and pursue the program he is looking for.

I'm glad, that back in 2004, I was able to convince him that he had the talent to do well in our sport and I feel the following record vindicates that.
