  • Did We Really Never Note Korchemny Guilty Plea?

    I don't find so in searching. Guess we were all Helsinki-obsessed at that point.

    It slipped under the radar. Similar to his career after the intial scandal. He will go back to a Francis like consultant (under the table). Similar to the steroid gurus that hangout at bodybuilding gyms.....

      He was still actively working with students from James Logan High School in Union City, CA this year. In theory he was no longer able to coach on the track, but I saw him at a number of meets working with athletes in the stands. For the out-of-towners, Logan High is a Bay Area powerhouse that was the 2004 Calif. Boys Champs with the girls 2nd. In 2005 the boys dropped to 11th (with 20 ‘sure’ points on the sidelines with a hamstring injury) and the girls were 4th.

        If he plead guilty to PED distribution, USATF should ban him for life and anyone that ever trains under him should be banned also. I hope USATF shows some balls for once

          High Knees:

          USATF certification is not required for coaching...nor should it ever be.

            USATF does not ban. They simply administer punishments handed down by USADA.

              And USATF has no control over high school (or collegiate) activities.

              It might be fitting for the judge to hand down as part of his sentencing, "banned from associating with teenaged athletes for a period of x years"

                USATF can ban coaches, and has done so. But as a practical matter, that simply prevents them from registering as a coach with USATF, being accredited as a coach at a USATF meet, or being named to coach a national team. If they continue coaching athletes privately, that activity would probably fly under USATF's radar.

                  and if USATF catches a banned coach coaching, what can it do? The only pressure that can be brought to bear (and I think we saw this a while back) is to make it public that the athlete is working with a disreputable, in which case the athlete's sponsor(s) steps in and says no-no-no!

                    Many become consultants ie Francis. Boxing has had the same issues with trainers who adminstered stimulants or took out the padding of gloves. The same guys become assistant trainers or consultants.I guess it's the same thing as the ex mobster who hits the streets and becomes the ice cream vendor again, eventhough the police know he back to rackateering..

                      Korchemny is a respectfull coach and there are many people out there who know this. It was never his will to be involved in any scandal.

                        Anybody who knows Remi also knows that he is a very nice man. He is generous and helpful and has provided elite level coaching to many track athletes, especially young track athletes, asking for nothing in return. Remi deserves a lot of credit for the contributions he has made to track and field over many, many years.

                          Ohhhh, I get it now, somebody FORCED him against his WILL to plead guilty to the court that he was a drug dealer (he did admit a guilty plea, this is what this thread is all about) and they FORCED him against his WILL to encourage, let's see, Kelli, Calvin, Alvin, Eric, Chris Phillips, Chryste, ummm can't think right now about the other names he was associated with (pretty much his whole crew), to use drugs, and, oh yeah, they ALL either got suspended, banned or are about to be banned. This is probably just the first time he was involved in this kind of thing, you know, took up dope pedaling at 70+ years of age.....he's probably just a first time offender.........What I can't understand is how could a parent send thier child to work with this man..........or worse, a H.S. coach to allow their athletes to work with him after even the school and the school board banned him from the campus?

                            Because they are able to view everything in context?

                              to high knees:

                              Its obvious... you have never met the man and never had the opportunity to know him. Athletes will always do what they want to. Very rare they are listening to what their coach have to say. Especially at the high level. You probably have never enter this field. Remi is a coach, a a teacher, one of the very few left out there who know the art of coaching and have the knowledge to analyse running and performance, find errors and fix them.
