Dan Brown is a con artist at its best
He is scamming wcap $9,000 a month for pretending to be coach
Most of those guys are being coached by Scott Simmons for free while the corn artist is pocketing the money every month and enjoying his family time at his home in Portland. I know for sure Korir and Bor is training with Scott full time in Colorado while Shadrack mix Scott and Danâ€™s program
Browne uprooted the wcap program to Portland because that is where his family is, he didn't want to move to Fort Carson because he already has a house in Portland and moving the program to Portland was going to benefit him not the athletes (Carson has a lot of training trails all of them above 6000ft, what does Portland have? I hear Dan the Con artist told wcap that wcap athletes will be training with Rupp and using Nike facility, really? Those guys never came closed to Alberto Salazar â€˜s group because they rarely trained in Portlandâ€¦this was Danâ€™s selling point guys
He took athletes to Mammoth Lakes for altitude training instead of Colorado because he is going to make a lot of money by driving his personal car and claiming the mileage (and that's thousands of money guys) if he was going to go to Fort Carson for altitude training he was not going to milk wcap for money (smart move right there)
During OT his athletes are going to stay in Portland so that Dan Browne will be driving his personal car to and fro for the purpose of making money by claiming mileage (those poor guys are going to take 2+hrs to Eugene every time they are going to run their races)
Coaching wise Dan Browne is a stubborn, dummy and one model fit all type of a guy, he has no knowledge about athletes coach relationship, he is all about himself, he is all about control, he knows how to manipulate people, if you meet him he talks as if he knows everything in reality he knows nothing about training east Africans...that's why most of those guys prefer a knowledgeable coach like Scott Simmons (Canova philosophy) type of training. Did you see what happened to Shadrack and Korir? Korir was better than Shadrack during the first Stanford 10k but then Shadrack moved to Fort Carson and start using Scott Simmons program... what happened next?
Korir has been only in wcap for few months and he has been using Scottâ€™s Training program since he went to Fort Carsonâ€¦if I am not wrong he is been there for about six months and now he is Olympian being coached by Scott for free yet Dan never gave him any credit
Cheseret rejoin wcap last year and started training with Scottâ€™s program and within few months he was able to run10k 28:31, this guy has been out of running scene for the last two years. Dan Brown denied Hillary Bor to join wcap, but Scottâ€™s welcome him to his training group and trained him for free and now Dan Browne is about to take all credit what a scam! Bor has been training with Scott for the last two years and now is Olympian.
Have you guys ever asked yourselves what happened to Kattam and Rono? Rono story is for another day but his running career went down very fast when he started training with Dan Brown? Thatâ€™s why Rono got out of the army. Kattam has been in wcap for about two years now but he has only run about 3 races, do you know why? The guy is talented, I have run with him and I know he can run at least 2:14 given a chance but a again Dan doesnâ€™t know shit about African training regiment
