Women in coaching: and evening with Julie Dodoo

To mark International Women’s day, England Athletics is hosting an event on the evening of  Wednesday 8th March for female coaches to meet-­‐up with fellow coaches, and discuss any issues they have experienced in their coaching careers.
To facilitate the evening we have been extremely fortunate to obtain the services of one of the country’s top female coaches Julie Dodoo.
Julie (nee Hollman) was International Heptathlete pb of  6135, 9th on the UK All Time list and competed in the Commonwealth and IAAF World Championships, before completing her career at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
Even before her competitive career had concluded, Julie qualified as a  Level 2coach (Speed and Jumps) – to which she subsequently added Level 2 Throws and Endurance, before qualifying Level 3 Combined Events coach. In the run-up to London Olympics Julie was accepted onto the UKA  Apprentice Coach scheme,
where she worked under the tutelage of Mastercoach Dan Pfaff.
More recently, Julie was appointed National Coach Mentor Lead for Long jump and Combined Events by EA.
In her coaching career, Julie has worked with a number of prominent Multi-Eventers and Long Jumpers – including
Louise Hazel (Olympian & 2010 Commonwealth Champion) Grace Clements (Bronze Medalist 2010 Commonwealth Games), Phyllis Agbo & Dominique Blaize.
Julie is married to fellow elite coach Jonas (coach to CJ Ujah and Daryl Neita amongst many others), and they have a young son, Logan.
