how can Dmitri Markov own the National Record for both Australia and that other country, Belaraus I believe it was...Did he set the record at Belaraus, and then become a citizen of Australia and set that National Record? Just curious how that works...

Yep, that´s what he did. Now I hear he trains in the U.S. in Phoenix, go figure.

yes that is what he did. He spent years training with Alan Laundis who was the national coach in Australia . I would be interested to know if he is still in Phoenix... anyone know ?

He was here for awhile, last thing that i've heard is that he is no longer here... not 100% though
Champions aren't made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have the skill and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill. - Muhammad Ali

Talent in cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work.
