    not necessarily. maybe a little more could have been said.

    you cant be a fan boy and a good coach. if you look at an athlete as perfect/unequaled/unbeatable you'll never see their weaknesses or how to help that athlete become better
    of course you can be a fan/support an athlete. thats obvious

    This makes perfect sense to me. If you are a "fan", and too preoccupied following other athletes on social media or constantly refreshing live results to see how they performed, you lose time that you could have used to make yourself better. I believe all Justyn is trying to say is you have to focus on yourself more than on others to have success.

    When my wife and I were racing in University, I once blew a warm up because I was watching her race. Coach had a little chat with me after the race....I sort of get it...
