#061 Gregg Troy & Jackson Leonard
Jackson Leonard swam for Coach Troy at the University of Florida but not for long. After his Freshman year he hung up his suit for coaching and worked for the team as one of the team managers.  Jackson was given Coach Chuck Warner and Dana Abbot's book about Coach Eddie Reese which sparked his interest in writing a book about Coach Gregg Troy... PRE-ORDER NOW ON AMAZON -- BOOK COMES OUT AUGUST 24th "Gregg Troy: It's Never Easy. Leadership, Swimming, and the Value of Challenging Work" Friday Flyday. If you've got a stable of distance swimmers, you need to be a great distance coach. If you've got a stable of sprinters, you need to be a great sprint coach. Learning from watching -- especially Alexander Popov and Gennadi Touretski. What do people not know about Ryan Lochte & Caeleb Dressel? When Lochte walks out as part of an 800 Free Relay he's always the shortest. When Dressel walks out as part of a 400 Free Relay, he's always the shortest. They can both dunk a basketball. They both make practice more challenging. What happened in 2017? Why the blip in performance from Caeleb? Brett thanks Gregg for all he has done for the sport and being a fierce competitor at his time at Auburn. Are the Olympics going to happen? Can Lochte get back to the Olympics? Can Dressel execute under the pressure in all these events? Subscribe, Review, Share!

Turning down a record deal. Craig Stevens giving up his 400 Free spot in Athens "because of what it does for the team." The Swimming Race of the Century: Michael Phelps vs. Pieter van den Hoogenband, vs. Ian Thorpe No privacy in training. Making the decision to retire.

Brett speaks with Alice Tait formerly known as Alice Mills! They talk about... Living in Brisbane, Australia with her husband British swimmer Gregor Tait and their two young boys. Her competitive nature begins in her childhood. "Always had to finish first. Always had to get up the stairs first." Swimming with Shannon Rollason and Jodie Henry Speed Conditioning -- doesn't matter if you are a boy or a girl it should be the same. Shannon would "reverse cycle" their program. Rather than starting with long endurance work like everyone else, they would start by swimming fast. Every season would start with speed. Most all speed work done off the blocks. Tim Garrison. Recovery. Test set: 6x50's on 2:00 Summer of 2005: averaged 25.7 How 8x200 IM's gave her confidence at a young age. Height and Weight throughout her career. Strength to weight ratio was excellent. Her friendship with Libby Trickett. 18 years old. Lead off swimmer. First Olympics. First day. First swim. World Record. Gold Medal. This is easy! Sarah Ryan. Petria Thomas. Coming together to do quality sets off the blocks doing relay exchanges together in practice. Did winning Olympic gold change your life? Her son finding her medals. Watching old footage with your kids. Gregor Tait, her husband, was a high level Scottish swimmer. Going through puberty. Losing self confidence. Sports psychology. Swimming Australia these days. "The rebuild phase is done now." Missing the team by just a couple tenths. "I really wanted to be a 3-time Olympian." Glenn Baker. Retiring mid-session. Becoming a nurse. Corona virus in Australia.

Remember that time when Darian and 3 of his South African compatriots captured Olympic gold in the 4x100 Free Relay in Athens, Greece circa 2004? Coaching for YMCA Westside Silver Fins in Phoenix, Arizona. Due to COVID-19, they are still open for emergency childcare for healthcare workers and essential working families.  Mike Lewis, famous swim photographer, told Brett he had to call Darian. Both of Darian's parents were competitive swimmers for Zimbabwe. Both still swim, mainly open water, and Darian's Mom teaches swim lessons, she owns her own swim school. Sister swam at TCU in Forth Worth, Texas. Sports in South Africa. Apartheid and Equal Rights.  He swam for Seals Swimming Club pretty much his entire age group career. He began training under Graham Hill leading up to 2004 Trials. Also learned a lot from Fred Vergnoux. How'd you end up on that 4x100 Free Relay in Athens? Darian walks through the the race starting with outstanding Roland Schoeman's lead off swim. After that, "just do your job".  Swimmers that influenced him: Penny Heyns. Terence Parkin. Meeting Bert Le Clos for the first time: "Hey my boy's going to win Olympic gold one day." - Bert Le Clos Retiring. Becoming an American citizen. And much, much more.

#034 Geoff Huegill
How'd you get that nickname, Skip?  How did Geoff get from Macai to Brisbane living and swimming with Coach Ken Wood? Why is Queensland such a breeding ground for swimming talent? Enjoying "the racing part" of swimming. And, being around your mates. On the 2nd 50 of the 100 Fly, Geoff would always repeat two words over and over again: "Long & Strong". Being a kid looking towards the 2000 Olympics (because they were in Sydney). Don Talbot's pep talks. His, "you can beat the Americans" mentality. Thropey pushing 1:50 200 Free at the end of 7x200's test set. Losing a parent at a young age molded his outlook on life. Pan Pacs 1997. Commonwealth Games 1998.  The Pre 9/11 Era.  How Lisa Curry-Kenny and Kieren Perkins changed everything. Michael Klim said you were his biggest rival. How'd you stay friends yet fierce competitors? Lars Frolander from Sweden was a great competitor.  "There's more to life than just swimming." 2000 Olympics 100 Fly: 1st Place, Lars Frolander 2nd Place, Michael Klim 3rd Place,  Geoff Huegill "By Day 6, it had become Groundhog Day." Geoff walks you through his 2000 Olympic experience focusing on the 100 Fly.  Why is Olympic pressure so much bigger than any normal pressure? It's the tip of the mountain, a century of history...home Olympics once in a life time opportunity.  51.6 in 2010 ranked #2 in the world. The journey to get to this point, 10 years after Sydney, was totally different. Especially, on the mental side. Would you have done anything different?  The quad leading up to Athens in 2004, there's a lot of things. Don Talbot getting removed as Swimming Australia's Head Coach. Don Talbot's culture. Don Talbot the Typewriter. Brett shares the story of Don leaving him off the Olympic team. Once you get to the highest level of swimming, you should take the opportunity to go learn from like minded athletes and coaches. Making a comeback in 2008 with Grant Stoelwinder as his coach. What are some of the things that you learned from your coaches? Struggling with his weight and being an emotional eater and drinker. The corona virus. Being stuck in Singapore and not being able to see his kids in Australia. Being an entrepreneur.  What are some things you can tell today's future top level swimmers? EVERYONE HAS A PHONE!! They go in depth about the Sydney 2000 experience. The long wait before they swam. The bus rides. And much, much more.

#033 Michael Klim
Today Brett interviews 2020 International Swimming Hall of Fame Inductee, Michael Klim. They discuss how a chubby kid from Poland got to Australia.  How he was "tapped on the shoulder" by Gennadi Touretski and became training partners with Alexander Popov. Being ranked #1 in the 200 Freestyle going into the 1996 Olympics and failing to make the Finals.  Peeing his pants on the blocks in Prelims of the 200 Free. Doing 150 "starts" in 1 calendar year trying to break 50 seconds every time. Deliberate practice. The story behind Klim becoming a pioneer by swimming freestyle with straight arms -- through trying things in training. In this case, through different sprint drills.  Sprint Drills: Dolphin Kick Freestyle. Dolphin Kick Freestyle with Head Up. Straight Arm Freestyle. Straight Arm Freestyle with Head Up.  How they trained by progressing through the day...Morning would be aerobic. Middle of the day would be your threshold set. And your 3rd practice at 7PM is all explosive sprints and power. They put in 90K/100K weeks. One of Klim's Greatest Rivals: Geoff Huegill Leading up to the 2000 Sydney Games, they had a training camp that was open to the public that saw a couple thousand people walk in and observe practice every day. Brett explains leaving college swimming at Auburn early to focus on the 2000 Sydney Games, a once in a lifetime opportunity. Beating the undefeated Americans in the 4x100 Freestyle Relay in 2000. They go very in deep about this.  Ian Thorpe ripped 2 or 3 suits and thus wasn't in the ready room. Klim led off that relay with a World Record time of 48.18.  And much, much more!
