    Thanks for posting. I would love to go to this, I just don't think it's feasible as a weekend trip from Canada. Are you going?

    There is a Canadian speed conference coming up November 14 to 16 here in Toronto. Hopefully lots of CF members can make it!

    I might go, the issue is that as you can see from the layout of the program that there are going to be three presentations at the same time. So to those one who are going little advice, choose wisely.

    Last time I went to Second European Sprint and Hurdles Conference layout was similar. Time dedicated to the presentations wasn’t long enough so no time for Q&A, sucks, and if presenters/coaches started to answer the questions they couldn’t finish their presentations because lack of time, I left bit disappointed.
    The good thing was that I was able to grab couple of coaches for a coffee and had a several ours chatting about their experiences, ideas, philosophy etc.. I was quite lucky, lol.

    I think there is pretty good International conference coming up, it is going to be held in Italy. I’ll post more info sometimes soon.
