Ireland experience

Ireland was a very beautiful country and I enjoyed drinking Guinness beer.
I've upload some of my photos to flickr.

For the Coach Conference, one of the presenters introduced two interesting studies which can be used for talent identification.

Musch and Grondin (2001): the relative age effects (RAE) are a pervasive phenomenon in competitive sports (eg soccer and ice hockey).

Cote et al (in press): birthplace can affect junior athletes' development and country boys are more preferable than city-bred ones to become elite athletes in future.
