    Wiederganger, I've always been fascinated by Netherland's speed skating hegemony these last decades through the Winter olympics.
    I wonder why this unique expertise could not be translated to track, to resume.
    I don't think there is much, if any, speed skating coaching expertise that could be translated to track. The movement patterns and lack of high impact training compared to running requires completely different approaches to training volume.

    I think the more important issues are the crossover in recruitment as mentioned by Weiderganger where speed skating has the bigger cultural profile and probably secures a great deal of talent compared to athletics. Coaching is not going to fix that advantage.
