The best question to ask any coach is, “Who have you coached?”
Well, for Rana Reider, that list is a long one.
Today, coach Reider works at Bristish Athletics overseeing a diverse group of sprinters, jumpers and hurdlers such as Harry Aikines-Aryeetey, Tiffany Porter, Shara Proctor, Dwaine Chambers, Martyn Rooney and James Ellington.
He is also the personal coach of 2012 Gold medalist triple jumper Christian Taylor of the USA. (You can watch his pre-race interviews on SpeedEndurance TV)
Prior to his role at British Athletics, he was the Men’s Assistant Coach at the University of Florida, and he even had stints at Clemson and Kansas State.
Interview with Rana Reider
I am going to start by being overly-Canadian and apologize for the sound in this video.
I purchased a Rode VideoMic Pro VMP Shotgun Microphone but I forgot to set the setting to HPF from FLAT. Hence, there is an incredible amount of background noise (hey, we are sitting in an Italian Coffee bar, what do you expect? Quiet Italians?)
In any case, we had a great chat despite the fact that it hasn’t even been 8 months since Rana moved to the UK.
