Rhonex Kipruto breaks Joshua Cheptegei’s short-lived 10K WR in Valencia
Listener question asks about the challenges of coaching via online correspondence when group training isn’t available.
Moose on the Loose asks where the Nike critics are in the wake of Rhonex Kipruto’s 10K world record run in non-carbon plated Adidas race flats.
This week’s guest PJ Bosch in a wide-ranging and colourful conversation that covers anything and everything from his career on the track from the 1500m to the 10K to his current capacity as coach and partner to Tara Palm alongside Adelaide Harriers.
PJ doesn’t hold back on his thoughts about the current state of athletics globally and domestically, how he started the Adelaide Invitational and how his plans for Richard Everest to take down Ryan Gregson’s U20 3000m record ultimately both succeeded and backfired.
PJ has heaps of tales from training in Kenya and being mates with 2008 Olympic 800m Gold Medalist Wilfred Bungei, watching Kenenisa Bekele set world records on the European track circuit and what the Australian track scene needs more of.
