Product description

About the Author

Percy Wells Cerutty was a controversial figure in Australian athletic circles in the 1960s. Ahead of his time, he advocated a revolutionary approach to athletic training that included dietary advice as well as a hard training regime. He insisted on a win at all costs mentality but felt that athletes should enhance their natural gifts. His most famous pupil was Australia's greatest middle distance runner Herb Elliott, regarded by many as the greatest middle distance runner of all time.
