The Athlete/Coach Relationship Is Understated In the Athletic/Sporting World

The Athlete/Coach relationship is understated in the athletic/sporting world. Here's why...

Ariarne Titmus's 1st gold medal in Tokyo caused quite a stir, for the right reasons. The reaction of her coach Dean Boxall was something to behold and became a household name and worldwide meme.

This moment in time has highlighted the importance of the relationship between the athlete and coach.

If we break it down, the athlete's job is to perform within the competition. The coach's role is to guide and prepare the athlete for competition.

A simple recipe.

Not easily done.

With Coach Dean, Ariarne has admitted "he knows me better than I know myself I think". This highlights the importance of developing a relationship that is beyond just making changes to technique and administering training sessions.

It goes beyond the pool for both of them. It's understanding the athlete as a person and developing trust so it's a symbiotic relationship.

It takes time to find a coach based on fit where you just "click".
