      Episode 25 - Big Rick's Chicks Break English Channel World Record! - Swim Smooth

      We're back and pumped today with the achievements of Swim Smooth Manchester's Head Coach, Lucy Lloyd-Roach and her team of four female swimmers who on the 1st September broke the world record to be the first ever female English Channel Relay Team to swim across La Manche in full medley order - backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and freestyle - with each team member having to complete 60 minutes of uninterrupted swimming on their given stroke. Lucy swam the butterfly leg as British Master's butterfly champion, with Melanie Holland (a Triple Crown marathon swimmer and 4-way English Channel relay swimmer) doing the honours on the backstroke, Claire Thorne (multiple British Masters Champion) taking the breaststroke leg, and Sarah Hempenstall (Ironman and another British Masters Champion) rounding out the team with the freestyle. The girls made it over to France in a stellar time of 12h17m and recount their training programs, experiences on the boat and their fund raising in honour of Surfers Against Sewage and also the Big Rick's team commemorating superstar marathon swimmer Mark Rickhuss who sadly passed away in 2005 at the age of just 41 from a heart attack whilst supporting another swimmer across the Channel. Paul and Adam also discuss the latest developments at Swim Smooth, both locally and globally with our Certified Coaches, as well as the latest project the team has been working on to really enhance our online / remote coach offering. Paul also celebrates his own 9-year "Channelversary" from the 8th September 2011, which proved to be the fastest of only two swimmers who made it across on the day which the Channel Swimming Association ratified as "the toughest conditions of 2011" - you'll see why here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WnevVG4YiwQ  Enjoy!

      Episode 22 - Spectators? For Swimming? - Swimmer's Ear

      World Champs are starting soon, but I don't know if I'll watch all of it. I think watching 12 & under Champs was more exciting...am I alone in that sentiment? How do we make all swimming more exciting for all spectators? Coaches, athletes, and parents alone can't make the sport the extremely popular, televised extravaganza we all know it should be, so what can we do to bring in outsiders?
