Suzanne Yoculan interview – part 2

One of the legendary NCAA coaches all-time is both entertaining and educational. I enjoyed hearing her many strategies for building Georgia into one of the top teams.

Highly recommended.

Listen online to start, as the podcast is not yet listed in every podcast directory.

educating sports parents

Nick interviews Gordon MacLelland of Working with Parents in Sport.

Dealing successfully with parents is a much neglected coaching skill.

They discuss how to onboard NEW parents starting with your pre-competitive programs.

Gordon recommends offering parents 4 minute Zoom sessions on a regular basis to avoid miscommunication.

talking about the ‘gymternet’

Fans are Fanatics.

We once had to rely on “mainstream media” to cover Gymnastics.

A few TV channels. International Gymnast magazine.

Sports Illustrated … every 4 years.

The situation for fans (and coaches) is much better today.

YOU and anyone online can post your own opinions the sport at no cost. And you might find an audience.

I recall when non-gymnast Spencer Barnes launched The Balance Beam Situation.

Instantly it was my #1 source of information on NCAA Gymnastics.

On the down side, every #hater, #troll and #bully can get online, as well.

Kristi Yamaguchi: Asian American Idol Blind Landing

For many Asian Americans, seeing Kristi Yamaguchi win the gold in women’s figure skating at the 1992 Olympics was everything. She was more than a famous athlete — she was one of the few Asian Americans on TV, period. Yet for Kristi, the polished, glamorous image that we all saw was very different from her experience on the inside. From her choice to skate solo to seeking endorsements in an anti-Asian climate, reporter Stefanie Ritoper looks at the moments that almost stopped Kristi from becoming the Kristi Yamaguchi that we all know.
