This workshop: Guy Spencer
Guy has been coaching horizontal jumps for 20 years, it started when he was asked to look after a promising young triple jumper – “because if you don’t nobody else will”. That young athlete was Tosin Oke, and working with him over two spells has given Guy an almost unique insight with what it takes to develop an athlete from their first ever session to an Olympic final.
In the ensuing two decades, Guy has been extremely privileged to work with many dedicated and talented young men and women jumpers – with some of his coaching highlights being becoming an inaugural member of the NCDP scheme in 2009, working with 13 athletes who have won medals at a National level, coaching 10 athletes who have triple jumped over 15m – including two over 16m and one over 17m, and coaching the National Champions of Nigeria, Jamaica and Botswana!
