For US Running to Improve, We Need Better Running Parents

August 15, 2012 By: John Blue Category: General Running News, Videos

We’ve all watched a lot of Olympics over the past couple of weeks. It is apparent that while the US may not be dominant in running, especially distance running, we are dominant in gymnastics.

After watching this video, I’ve decided it’s because the parents of US gymnasts are so much better than the parents of runners.

Next time you’re at a high school cross country meet, notice the parents quietly sipping coffee and cheering as their kids toil past. Perhaps if these same parents were a bit more intense the kids would try a little harder.

It’s just a theory.
