A Great Man has died

Arthur Lydiard, an athletics coach in New Zealand has died, aged 87. You've probably never heard of him, but in NZ in the sixties, he came up with a new coaching technique that resulted in four gold medals for men in the black singlet.

You can read a lot more about him at the New Zealand Herald's website.

A genuinely great man.
