EACA is proud to announce two new Web Series

Next February will see two new EACA web series coming out! Jimson Lee will host the ‘Split Second’ series, dedicated to a technical insight on sprints, hurdles and relays. 

Instead, EACA president Frank Dick will host a series with the title ‘Coach to Coach’, with the focus on how great coaches become great.

Two big italian names for the first episodes of both series

Frank Dick’s guest will be absolutely stunning: Antonio La Torre, Team Italy Head Coach! The architect behind the unpredictable five gold  medals for Italy is born in Manfredonia (Puglia) but he moved to Milan with the family when he was 9 years old. He got the Physical Education diploma in 1983 in Milan, while he was also working as technical designer for a big metallurgical company.  10 years later he graduated in Science and techniques of physical activities in Dijon (France). He coached several Race Walk athletes, including the 1999 World Champion and 2004 Olympic Champion Ivano Brugnetti.

Jimson Lee will host Marco Airale, coach to Darryl Neita, Ama Pipi and Jimmy Vicaut. Marco is a 32 years old italian coach from Chivasso (Turin), also graduated in physiotherapy with a master in osteopathy. He started coaching in Italy, with successful results (18 medals with 7 titles at various National Championships from 2015 to 2019). He also worked as therapist on the Juventus FC team for 3 years. In 2019 he became Performance Therapist of the Chinese National Team and he then worked as assistant coach to Randy Huntington and Rana Reider until the last Olympic Games. After Tokyo, he founded his own training group which is currently based on Padova (Italy).

Episode 1 of the ‘Coach to Coach’ Series will be out next February 1st, while the opening of  ‘Split Second’  Series is scheduled for February 11th.
