The team at Tri Dynamic have been busy racking up the air miles so far in 2013! Following on from organising the first ever tri camp in the world for Age Group athletes with Elite Coach Darren Smith in Canberra they travelled back to London for another Tri Master Class at the weekend. This was Darren’s second Master Class with Tri Dynamic in London, and he said,
‘It was great to be back in London. I really enjoyed working with those who attended the Tri Dynamic training weekend because the enthusiasm from the age groupers was infectious and we made some really significant changes in such a short period of time.’
The event was probably the only opportunity this year for Age Groupers in the UK to learn the secrets of Darren Smith’s Dsquad success. The one day clinics took place at Hampton Pool and St Mary’s University College Twickenham and focused on improving swim and run technical skills. Darren’s hands on, high attention style of coaching meant age groupers learnt a massive amount on how they could improve. Over the last 10 years Darren Smith has established himself as one of the finest triathlon coaches in the world with an impeccable record, being the only coach in the history of the sport to produce 6 athletes from his Dsquad who raced at an Olympics and in 2012 he was the first ever coach to have the World #1 & #2 ranked ITU WCS triathletes. He coaches several of the best triathletes in the world including Anne Haug, Jodie Stimpson, Aileen Morrison, Annabel Luxford and Katie Hewison as well as a raft of up and coming athletes who will make a big impression in 2013.
There were two ability days to choose from with SAT being designed for Intermediate and SUN for Advanced. Participants travelled from all over the UK and from as far away as Italy to learn from Darren. With limited numbers each participant got individual coaching, video analysis and advice from Darren Smith and by the end of the event there were some significant improvements in a very short space of time. Darren Smith will also be speaking at the upcoming ITU Science & Triathlon 2013 World Conference in Switzerland this weekend.
