That may be the story I heard.
Nobby and I were discussing the Dixon boys last night. Rod often is cited as a guy who used Arthur's approach successfully. But I know that Rod always says he was coached by his brother John, who, Rod always said, gave up his own career to coach Rod.
I'm pretty sure that John made the NZ team for World Cross Country at least once, but other than that, I don't know anything about hs own running. Do you know anything about the distances he raced and how fast, what his connection to Arthur was, if any (sort of seems like there would be as Rod acknowledges a Lydiard influence,) whether John continued to race at all as Rod developed?
