A lot of allergy medications are banned, unfortunately. (Or fortunately, if you consider the report a couple of years ago that over 90% of pro triathletes were registered asthmatics.) I think only specific ones are allowed, and they require paperwork to be filled out beforehand.

Well guys ... How was everyone's holiday ???

Dan ... Take the business ... No one is asking you to do a commerical without liking the product !!! Put together a great site an dlet him pay great money and you are both even ... Thumbs Up

Kind of hard to evaluate his coaching ... He has touched upon many athletes who have had good careers although not necesssarily while with him ... So for the purposes of this assignment we will assume he has done an ok job Wink

Now as far as the project, my question is how sincere they are ... It seems to me that they are not looking to attract the best potential coaches out there - or maybe they are ... Doesn't seem like it though .. And what is the selection criteria for the athletes and how do they plan on "transplanting them" ??? Would just seem to me that if the program is to be a success there are some holes yet to be filled ... But ya'll know how I think ..

I believe we're getting ahead of ourselves... All I've got is a request for a meeting in 2 weeks that I've yet to answer.

It's hard to tell how well formulated the plan is. I get the impression, as alluded to above, that it's more in the promotional stage and is coming to light now largely to take advantage of the public awareness of Webb's situation.
