18 Sep Brett Sutton and Olympic Gold Medalist Nicola Spirig
Chrissie Wellington’s former Team TBB coach Brett Sutton is also the coach of Olympic gold medalist Nicola Spirig. I found one of the most interesting parts of Wellington’s autobiography was about her relationship with Sutton. With a controversial past as well as a coaching style criticized by many, Sutton produces champion and consistent podium winners. In a 2 part series on Slowtwitch.com, Timothy Carlson writes a brilliant expose of the mind of Sutton and how Spirig came to be the Olympic champion. It’s detailed but well worth a read: Anatomy of Olympic Gold – Part 1.
