Australian Dolphin Tommy Fraser Holmes took some enforced time off in 2017. He talks to Lach about how he got back into the water and training. In this wide ranging interview they discuss tactics for managing physical and mental issues, motivation swings, support networks and more.
We continue our discussion about self marshalling by welcoming 2 representatives from New Zealand. Lach chats to Technical Official Greg Forsyth, from Wellington, and Swimmer William Campbell, from Wharenui Swim Club in Christchurch. He learns how it is implemented in NZ, and issues surrounding the system.
Self marshalling has long been seen as something that happens overseas. We decided to find out more about it to understand whether it might be an opportunity for swimming in Australia. Lach was delighted to interview Jay Thomas of USA Swimming to learn how it works there. Mark Heathcote of Swimming NSW, joined the conversation.
To celebrate our 50th episode we follow Kylie Minogue’s lead and ‘step back in time’ to relive some of our best moments from the past 49 episodes.
