National Training Center (NTC) Sports Field

Lance Brauman

Lance Brauman, the high profile coach behind what is arguably the very best sprint group in the World, calls South Lake home. For a decade, the Adidas Pure Athletics Professional Track Group has trained out of the National Training Center in Clermont.

Brauman has coached more Olympic medalist than we can count.  Shaunae Miller, Veronica Campbell Brown, Tori Bowie, Tyson Gay, Keston Bledman, David Verburg, Tony McQuay, the list goes on and on. Coach Lance was nice enough to stop by and give us an update on how his group training is progressing thus far here in Clermont.

Kevin Grogan had an opportunity to recently speak with both men.
