Description

Colm O’connell Training Philosophy

His story is like a fairy tale. When Colm O’Connell, a 28-year-old Irish Patrician Brother from Cork, decided to take on a teaching job in the small Kenyan town of Iten in 1976, he never expected that he would become the country’s most successful middle-distance coach of all time.

Brother Colm had neither been an athlete nor a coach before. He was thrown into the water – and he learnt to swim. After only four years, he became responsible for athletics at the renowned St Patrick’s High School. Many Olympic and World champions have been coached by the modest and ever-friendly Irishman.

Now he is driving on the great David Rudisha, 800m World record-holder and World and Olympic champion.

He did not have a coaching degree or a university background in sports science. He started off coaching youth athletes. With young people, you must be quite flexible because many of them will not become elite athletes. Not all have the same talent or the same desire.

He coached 25 world and olympic champions such as Charles & Kipkoech Cheruiyot, Peter Rono, Matthew Birir, Helen Kimaiyo, Wilson Kipketer, Japhet Kimutai, Sally Barsosio, Rose Cheruiyot, Joseph Tengelei, Benson Koech, David Kiptoo, Lydia Cheromei ,Julius Chelule , Bernard Barmasai, Gideon Chirchir and Wilson Boit (Kipketer) , Augustine Choge ,Isaac Songok and David Rudisha.
