During my Podcast interview with Hugh Matheson and Chris Dodd the name Bob Janousek came up a lot.

We got an email afterwards from Adrian Ellison and since he was coached by Janousek at the time, it is worth publishing,

Adrian writes

I think that Hugh was absolutely right to stress Bob Janousek’s importance in creating the foundations for a situation which Jurgen could then build upon 30 years later.

Not only the coaching system but also the belief amongst aspiring international rowers that we could win medals.

In my opinion, Jurgen simply was/is meticulous in applying his methods and processes. He doesn’t cut corners or make concessions. Like Spracklen, he knows what’s required to win, and tells you very clearly : follow my plan and it’ll give you the best best chance of winning. Every short-cut or concession will reduce that chance and increase the odds of losing.
