Coach of year Reider joins up with UK Athletics team
Tuesday 16 October 2012
UK Athletics has yet to decide on a replacement for Charles van Commenee as head coach but has made a key appointment in enlisting the services of the man who was named coach of the year by United States Track and Field in 2011. Rana Reider moved from Florida to Britain at the end of last week to start work as a consultant. The Californian guided Christian Taylor to triple jump gold at the London Olympics and is also the coach of Tianna Madison, who ran the lead-off leg in the world record-breaking US women's 4x100m relay team at the Games.
Reider already coached British long jumper Shara Proctor and has been named as the new individual coach of sprinter Harry Aikines-Aryeetey.
