Another Training Talk with Jüri Tamm (Part 1)

I’ve had the chance to talk with many elite athletes and coaches for this blog, but hands down my favorite interview was with two-time Olympic medalist Jüri Tamm several years ago. We had a wide ranging discussion about the decline of Soviet dominance, talent identification, technique, training, and many other topics. But what made it so interesting is that I knew so little about him before we met. When he told me he would be in Switzerland again recently, I took a three hour train ride just to meet him for a coffee.
