A Swiss hammer coach recently told me of an experience he had while visiting a German throwing conference years ago. At the conference there was a debate about the proper terminology to use when teaching technique. One coach preferred one phrase, his rival another. All the while the lead coach insisted: “We all have to be on the same page!” But do we? The Swiss coach pointed out that our country functions with four official languages, and is perhaps stronger because of it. One can argue that the language and cultural diversity makes us stronger.
