Episode 46: Chasing Excellence (with John Godina)

When I was first starting out as a shot putter, John Godina was THE man in the sport. His technique was smooth as silk and he simply did not lose. After setting the still standing NCAA record, winning four world titles and two Olympic medals, Godina finally hung up his shoes in 2008, but that was not his end in the sport. He since founded Altis, which he now runs as CEO. Altis has grown as a training center with more than 100 elite track and field athletes and a coaching center featuring a growing education program. On this episode of the podcast he joins us to discuss some of the lessons he has learned from his career.

    Trained under John in Phoenix, he was a great athlete back in the day but coaching…? Not such a great coach, no established system to follow, many assistants that aren’t committed to their athletes, cuts athletes when they don’t give him more $ than was agreed upon and injured athletes, keeps those around just because they’re a name in the sport even when regular performances are substandard, shady operator. Can’t trust him.
