Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 10 August 2016


Olympic coach heads to Rio EDITHVALE running coach Sean Williams is trackside at the Rio Olympics cheering on two-time Olympian long-distance runner Ben St Lawrence. Williams has coached the 10,000 metre runner in the gruelling 25-lap race for a decade and will be cheering from the stands when St Lawrence takes to the track on Saturday (13 August). His former students include 3000m steeplechase Olympian Victoria Mitchell and 800m runner Selma Kajan. Williams moved to Edithvale from Sydney earlier this year and has been impressed by training facilities in Kingston. “There are over 30km of beautifully groomed, natural trails in the area that are absolutely perfect for runners of all levels to train on,” Williams said. “They wind along the ocean front, pass waterways such as Mordialloc Creek and Patterson River and cut through the pristine wetlands. One cannot help but be inspired when training in such amazing surrounds.” Williams has launched a running coaching business in the area and has recently set up running training groups in Edithvale for recreational runners and a separate group for juniors. But despite his vast experience, Williams knows there is always more to learn so has signed up for the Kingston and Glen Eira Mentor Partners Program. The free confidential service taps into the expertise and experience of volunteer business mentors who generously give their time to help local business owners to succeed. Williams has been partnered with accredited mentor David Lennon who has launched eight start-ups and turned them into industry leaders. See mentorpartners.com.au or call 9524 3333 for information on how to gain support through the Kingston and Glen Eira Mentor Partners Program.
