Athlete: A female college freshmen.
Scenario: She is a college freshmen who has been recruited as a track athlete at a mid-major D1 school. As a high schooler, she was top 3 in her state in the mile and the triple jump. You are the jumps coach and the head coach is the distance coach. Obviously both of you want to have her in your group. The head coach however sees the possibility of having her score well at the conference meet in multiple events and would like her to continue to train for both events despite what would seem to mean a compromise in her overall development.
Things to consider:
*Would you continue to let her do both events (if it were up to you)?
*Would you focus on one event over the other?
*Considering she will be training for the 2 events how would you propose her training be set up?
