In this interview, Michael goes into great detail on his coaching background and philosophy. He begins by talking about his development as a coach, and points to a few coaches that became mentors and great influences. As a big part of his expertise lays in the sprint relay, he carefully answers a number of questions on the important elements of this event, including how to manage the athletes, what to do to prepare a world class team, his preferred passing technique and the ordering of runners. Since Coach Khmel has also produced a number of world class sprinters, the suggestions he gives on how to structure a weekly plan in both the preparation and competition phases is invaluable information. Michael’s wide range of experience and years of study results in some exceptional advice given in this fantastic interview.
