I’ve already discussed a little background about my coach, Dr. Anatoly Bondarchuk. As I have repeatedly said, he is widely regarded as the best hammer throw coach in the world. However, when I speak to most people about my coach, their first question is normally: ‘why is he now living in small town Canada?’ The short answer is that his current job with the Kamloops Track and Field Club allows him to be closer to his daughter, an emigrant to Canada. A recent article in the Kamloops Daily News discusses this and more about Coach Bondarchuk, telling everything from his history as an athlete and coach to his pleas for more support for his athletes. As for how much he enjoys his new life in Canada, the ever optimistic coach said: “Everything is good. Good city, good people, good life, good job. Everything is fantastic.” This was the most informative and in depth article I have read on Coach B and well worth the read.
