People get into running for different reasons.. but some are more unique than others!  Craughwell AC's Rob Hogan can be heard on one of the largest running podcasts out there - New Zealand's Coach Jeff, where he talks about the unique sport that he is on the forefront of.

The interview is brilliant stuff - very interesting and well worth a listen. He talks about his performances in the world championships (7th in the world last year in Oregon), his hopes for the future of his chosen sport and how he has worked on his running since joining Craughwell AC. 

 

Rob has great natural ability as a runner.  He's a dedicated trainer and usually attends the squad sessions on Saturday mornings, and has been making massive advancements since joining the club. 

 

Rob is also a professional golf coach (check out the Hogan Golf academy), and used his high-tech swing analysis technology to take this cracking video of Michael Shannon on the home straight in yesterday's Craughwell 10.  If you want to appreciate the running gait of an elite level runner, you could do worse than to check out this video.. a camera like this would be fantastic for analyzing high-jumps, long jumps, sprint technique, etc.
