Nat Page will be the assistant jumps coach for the United States
THE FLATS -- Georgia Tech track and field jumps and hurdles coach Nat Page was selected to be the men's assistant coach for jumps/combined for the 2015 International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships, which are set for August 22-30 in Beijing, China.
"I am very excited and honored to be chosen as an assistant jumps coach for the 2015 outdoor world championships," Page said. "To be a staff member on this team with other notable coaches from around the country is very humbling.
"I think being around and helping some of the greatest athletes in the world in our sport will only increase my knowledge and understanding of what we do in our sport. With each team that I have served on I try to bring back knowledge that will help me as a coach and the athletes that I work with here at Georgia Tech."
Page served as the jumps coach for the 2007 and 2011 Pan American team, and was the head coach of the 2014 IAAF World Indoor Championship team.
Since joining the Tech staff in 1996, Page has mentored Tech student-athletes to 40 ACC titles, 41 All-America performances and four national titles. Page was named the NCAA South Region Men's Assistant Coach of the Year in 2008, and the Mondo Women's Jumps/Multi Events Coach of the Year in 2004.
In addition to his work at Tech, Page founded Nat's Athletic Training and Career Experiences in September 1993. He has coached nine World Championship team members and five Olympians, including Chaunte Howard Lowe who holds the American indoor and outdoor high jump records.
