George Gandy on Training for the Marathon (Part One)

In this video, Dr. George Gandy discusses coaching the marathon and, in particular, the build up to the 2000 and 2004 Olympics, in both of which his athlete, Jon Brown, finished 4th.

Gandy, who has over 40 years of experience in the sport, has long been recognised as one of the UK’s top endurance coaches and has worked with athletes such as Seb Coe and Jack Buckner from his renowned Loughborough University coaching base.

Among his many achievements he worked with Coe through to 800m and 1500m Olympic gold, and Buckner to 5000m European gold. Most recently he coached 1500m talent Lisa Dobriskey to World Championship silver in Berlin in 2009.
