UKA Coach Building A Better Coaching Environment


Dan Pfaff: A Video Analysis of A World and Olympic Champion Sprinter

In this video UKA's Dan Pfaff and Derek Evely discuss the benefits of using video analysis in the coaching of sprinters at all levels.

Pfaff's resume is littered with Olympic and World Champions, many of whom he took from developing athlete to world beater. Current coach to European Championships silver medallist Christian Malcolm amongst others, Pfaff is the National Performance Centre Director at Lee Valley in London and has coached over 70 athletes, including former Olympic champion and 100m World Record holder Donovan Bailey, to Olympic Games and World Championships.

Evely is the National Performance Centre Director at Loughborough and has coached athletes ranging from Tyler Christopher in the 400m to Gary Reed in the 800m to Dylan Armstrong and Sophie Hitchon in the hammer.

    As a level 1 coach who has recently taken the level 2 course, the video helped me to be aware that the technical model is only a guide. Many of the worlds greats do not entirely match the model and as Dan Pfaff said he has athletes with perfect technical models who do not make the meets…

    Just to point out that Apple I pads do not support Adobe flash. So cannot view your video clips. Any way they can be loaded in dual format so I can view them?

    Hi John,
    As of September 2011 our new videos are now in MP4 format so they should be viewable on iPads.

    Is there anyway of making these available to coaches outside the UK?

    I live in Ireland and can’t access the videos when I come back from the UK.

    The information here is awesome so would love to be able to view it back home.
