The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games may change to a sprint format combined with a mixed team relay: we discuss the background, history, racing and training implications. Lab testing season for triathletes is here, and we break down this trend, and why this doesn't move athletes performance forward. The marginalization of coaches, over-promising and under-delivering of sport science. Decision making and why this is the key to real coaching effectiveness. We address questions on high load training camps, what to do about illness, elite vs age group training, HIIT blocks, marginal gains, and nutrition questions from fasted training, supplements, protein and recovery drinks.
