“We just thought it was the right time” - Wariner said on coach split

10 February 2008

World and Olympic champion Jeremy Wariner has said that his decision to part company with long time coach Clyde Hart was all made by him.

Reports suggested that he was influenced to change his coach, the American, who his now coach by Michael Ford, said it was all on him.

“We just thought it was the right time to do it,” Wariner said this week in Beijing. “It wasn’t an inappropriate time. It was all my decision.

"Michael had nothing to do with it. I know some said Michael had a decision in it. It was all me. I felt like it was a good time to do and my training has been going great.”

Wariner also added that “money” was part of the problem, but not the entire reason for the split.

Wariner, who will defend his Olympic title in Beijing, China later this year, will open his season in Sydney and Melbourne in Australia, and he said he wants to continue to dominate.

“I want to defend my title this year, break the world record and be the first one to run 42 seconds,” Wariner said this week in Beijing. “And I want to keep my dominance and be No. 1 for the rest of my career."
