Hits from track: Georgia Wassall Rotary workout featuring legendary coach John Atterton

In March this year, Runner’s Tribe travelled to Rotary Athletic Field (NSW,Australia) and filmed this workout any day film with Georgia Wassall and the A-Team. On that day, we were lucky enough to interact and share some invaluable time with coach John Atterton. John, as many of you know, has just passed away overnight after battling Motor Neurone Disease (MND). His kind nature and immense knowledge of athletics has been imparted onto so many athletes throughout his career. John’s exceptional impact on athletics and evidently the world will echo on through time and inspire athletes and coaches for decades to come. He will be missed.
