South Africa’s Avaneesh Pandoo has recently returned from Kenya on official weightlifting duty.
He was in the East African country for a successful Olympic Solidarity Coaching Course in Nairobi.
Appointed by the IWF, Pandoo was hosted by the Kenyan Federation.
Among the topics covered at the coaching course were: Role of the coach, characteristics of children and how to coach them, the technical rules, the warm-up, the snatch and clean & jerk techniques, mistakes and correction, the spirit of fairplay, ÔÇ¿periodisation planning, video analysis of techniques.
Said Pandoo after the course: “At the end of the course I must say that the coaches learnt a lot and will be able to correctly demonstrate the techniques and also have the ability to teach the techniques correctly.
“Close monitoring will be kept in the form of quarterly feedback from the coaches and the association as to the development of the game in Kenya.
“In a meeting, the Olympic Committee President of Kenya, athletics legend Dr. Kipchoge Keino gave me his word that he will do his best to keep the support towards the development of the weightlifting in Kenya.”
