      Coaches praised
GB give ‘golden’
nod to Australians
LONDON, Aug 8, (AFP): Great Britain
acknowledged Wednesday their greatest
gold medal haul in a century was partly
thanks to Australian coaches.
   While Britain started the day third in
                                                         Felix ends long wait
the London 2012 medals table with 22
golds, Australia were 12th with just four,
a long way off their target of a top five
finish.
   But rather than rub Australia’s noses
in it, British Olympic Association
(BOA) chairman Colin Moynihan insist-
ed their sporting rivals had not lost the
world’s respect.
   Concerns have been raised in
Australia about their top coaches going
abroad, and asked whether they had had
                    an influence on
                    Britain’s success,
                    Moynihan said: “It’s
                    helped.
                       “They have pro-
                    vided through their
                    institute       some
                    remarkable coaches
                    which we’ve been
                    fortunate enough to
                    benefit from across a
                    number of sports.”
      Meares          Australian coaches
                    have played an
important role in Britain’s cycling and
rowing teams, which have won eight and
five golds respectively.
   Moynihan went on: “Australia have
had their challenges over the past 12
days. But the respect though from the
world of sport for Australia still stands
exceptionally high.
   “They hosted the great Games of
Sydney and subsequently have taught
the rest of the world a great deal.
   “Nobody can sit back and not have the
maximum respect for Australia.
   “Many of us would like them to have
turned more of those silvers into gold for
them, for that team — when they’re not
competeing against Team GB that is.
   “I’ve got nothing but praise for
Australia.” Moynihan also paid tribute to
Australian track cyclist Anna Meares,
who beat Britain’s Victoria Pendleton to
the women’s sprint gold in a showdown
between two of the sport’s greats in a
buzzing Velodrome.                                       (From left): US’ Allyson Felix, US’ Sanya Richards-Ross, Jamaica’s Veronica Campbell-Brown, Jamaica’s Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, Trinidad and Tobago’s Semoy Hackett and France’s Myriam Soumare
