The ostrich who keeps his head in the sand might be able to avoid disasters but he is also missing opportunities.

While some talk up how good a few female distance athletes are going, and that is fantastic in respect to that gender/discipline combination; the rest of the sport is in a terrible malaise with very few athletes at a senior national standard.

Adam Didyk's success with his female distance athletes shows what happens when a good coach is combined with talented athletes.

Whispers is right, there seems to be a 'head in the sand' approach to other disciplines, especially the sprints. Some of these coaches of junior athletes are driven by paranoia and ego. The athlete emerges from their teens having stagnated and frustratingly watch interstate rivals pass them by, while they are stuck in a time warp with a possessive coach who would rather see their athlete retire than move on to a senior coach.

I won't coach anyone under 18 any more, to avoid having to deal with certain individuals; and there are athletes who when they approach me, when I find they're connected to some coaches & clubs I just won't take on, to avoid the hassle.
