Anyone who knows about the Fraziers knows this isn't a story of training intensity or philosophy. It's a story of a controlling father focused on his daughters' track times to the detriment of their growth and upbringing. Simple as that. My heart goes out to them and I hope they are doing well.
I blame the college coach FAR more than I blame the father. Ryen was in great shape in the fall of her freshman year. After 5 years with the NC State coaches, she can't break 19. Sorry but that's not daddy's fault. It's Henes' fault.
You sound like a NCSU hater; Your knowledge of the criminal behavior of the father is severely lacking; also Henes is a great coach with a positive proven record.
1 - You can't allege the father has committed crimes without evidence. Your post should be deleted by the moderators.
2 - It's Henes fault the father was even involved in the training in college. Do you think Wetmore would allow that?
3 - The only really good athlete she coaches is her own daughter. Henes (the mom) was a NCAA champion who ran 15:30 and 32:00 and her husband was an NCAA all american in both XC and track. Her daughter's genetics had more to do with her success than the coach did.
4 - There are tons of examples across the nation of athletes that were overtrained in high school but the college coaches were able to right the ship and get them to make huge improvements in college. None of those examples, however, exist at NC State.
