Wildeboer on Glæsner’s criticism: The results depend upon how the athlete decides to follow the program


Interesting interview here on SwimSwam with now former Danish head coach Paulus Wildeboer, following the criticism from Mads Glæsner, that Wildeboer should have ‘ruined his Olympics‘. Wildeboer disagrees, says Glæsner wasn’t prepared for altitude training, didn’t follow advice and therefore didn’t adapt properly.

Although Glaesner was unhappy with his training leading into the Olympics Wildeboer believes strongly that the program was correct, but the results depended upon how the individual athlete decided to follow it.
