So with Craig Mottram leaving his coach (see the link that was posted on the front page: http://news.theage.com.au/spor...-6ftl.html ), I'm wondering if Webb should do the same thing.
There was an excellent quote in that article from Mottram:
"'...we'd done all we could for each other and he agreed.'"
Webb is in a similar situation as Mottram, but is 3 years his junior. With Mottram leaving his first coach in 2002 and moving on to a second coach, running well in world championships, but falling short in 2008, the two international caliber athletes have parallels running the same course. Webb left Razco in '01 for Warhurst, and left Warhurst in '02 to go back to Razco. Is it possible that they have done all they could for each other? I think it is possible.
Working with Razco went well for Webb as we saw from '03-'07, yet 2008 was an absymal year. Maybe there are other factors going into consideration that we don't know about (family, finances, life), but Webb is an experienced runner who has displayed independence at an early age. He bought his own house, a Mercedes, traveled and competed internationally, set American Records, yet did all that after a hard fall (NCAA Champs in '02, appendicitis in '03) with such intense pressure. Therefore, he knows how to get himself to the top.
Thus, the question remains: Should Webb follow in Mottram's steps and go solo?
