Our questions this week are around coaching the female athlete. We chat about the challenges for male coaches and ask are females the preferred option? Also, should National or World Governing Bodies be expected to take on the responsibility of educating their athletes or should it fall to parents?
We discuss how we can ensure coaches and clubs are educated on the various topics of female athlete health.
Plus, we answer a question on the culture of running and weight and the concept of a “race weight”. We ask whether athletics is beginning to break away from this sometimes damaging culture and environment.
Thank you again for providing us with some interesting topic points. Keep your questions coming!
