Coaching the Champion

Dear M,

You don't have to be a champion to become a coach. Most of our famous sports personalities have coaches whose name we, the ordinary Indians, don't even know. Yet they are the people who have brought out the strengths in the sportsmen and sportswomen.

These coaches need not be national level or international level performers. They have experience; in some cases, very good experience. They know the tricks of the game even though they aren't brilliant at it themselves. They cannot practise what they preach; they help others practise. They show what the performers sometimes cannot see.

Every artist can be a coach. A person who talks about the art need not be the winner; he can be the guide.

They are the experts, from the coaching point of view. They are not the champions on the field, they are the champions who make the champions.
