Great Hurdlers I Have Coached

planet14 A Tribute To Courage planet14

Juliana Haile, Julie Osborne, Sarah Owenby and Vonda HarrisonThis website is my tribute to the many great hurdlers  I have had the privilege of working with as a hurdles coach for A. C. Reynolds High School in Asheville, North Carolina and the Asheville Lightning Junior Olympics Team. It is also a record of their accomplishments in hurdling and a testimony to their individual success in one of the most difficult and challenging athletic events on the planet. A hurdles race, regardless of the distance,  is essentially a savage event by nature, since the element of danger is always present. The hurdler must run at top speed clearing hurdles in his or her lane on the track, and falls and injuries frequently happen,  even at the elite level. Courage, coordination and concentration are the hallmarks of great hurdlers, and when done properly hurdling is not just an athletic enterprise but an artistic expression of extraordinary grace and elegance. It becomes performance art of the highest order. This site is dedicated to my daughter Susanna and my son Daniel, two of the first hurdlers I ever coached, and two of the best.
