Walsh turns a brief eye to football

In a slightly unusual move, Charlie Walsh, the previous head cycling coach of Australia's track program, has temporarily teamed up with his former AIS cycling team physiologist-turned Australian Rules football coach, lending advice to players from the Adelaide Crows football team.

Crows coach Neil Craig worked with Walsh as a physio with the Australian cycling team for 15 years, and recently asked his former boss if he could sit on the bench as one of his assistants. Walsh has been recruited to advise the football stars on the psychological aspects of the game, which Walsh believes shares many similarities to the sport he coached for more than 20 years.
