Team values and personal principles

swimming-coach_carmel-indiana-chris-plumb-1

Rounding up teenagers at 6:30 in the morning six days a week, 50 weeks a year and turning them into champions, over and over again. Sounds like hard work but also tremendously satisfying for swimming coach Chris Plumb. Chris has helped produce dozens of Olympic caliber athletes at the nationally ranked Carmel Swim Club in Carmel, Indiana. He’s been with the club for over a decade and became head coach in 2006.

Carmel has won the USA Swimming Gold Medal Club of Excellence in 2010, 2011 and 2012. He is also head coach of the Carmel High School Swim Team, whose girls’ squad has won 28 consecutive state champions.

Swimming Coach Paul Newsome: Freestyle Mastery in Pool & Open Water

Triathlon Swimming and Open Water

swimming_coach_paul_newsome_stroke
Just in time for the summer splashing season in the northern hemisphere, week we have swimming and triathlon coach Paul Newsome. I’m very excited about this interview because it’s the first time we get to talk about sharks on the show.
Swim_Coach_Paul_Newsome_Triathlon_Training
Based in Perth, Australia, Paul is the director of Swim Smooth, a teaching and coaching academy strong on bio mechanics and the finer points of the freestyle stroke – from short course races up to ultra marathon type events, including Ironman triathlons. And Paul certainly practices what he preaches – he is the 2013 winner of the race around Manhattan Island – also known as New York City – a 28.5 mile feat that he accomplished in 7 hours and 14 minutes.

For our loyal listeners based in England, it’s worth pointing out the Paul grew up in Yorkshire and studied Sport Science at the University of Bath.
