Katie Hoff Discusses the Pros and Cons of Foregoing the NCAA to Turn Pro We sat down with 3x Olympic medalist, 7x world champion Katie Hoff to discuss a big topic, especially for teenage women in swimming: Going Pro versus competing in the NCAA. With Olympian and world champion Regan Smith announcing her decision to turn professional after competing at Stanford for one year, we wanted a perspective from someone who had made this decision and seen how it played out in their career.
Bob Bowman Discusses Popovici WR, Regan Smith to ASU, and Marchand World Titles Bowman gives great insight into what Popovici does well in the water and where his development could take him. He then proceeds to discuss Regan Smith moving to ASU and what that will look like for her future in terms of training. Bowman also touches on his rapidly growing Post-grad group after the addition of Chase Kalisz, Jay Litherland, and Sierra Schmidt (in addition to Smith) and the development of Leon Marchand from Olympian to NCAA champion to 2x world champion in both IM events this summer.

Greg Meehan Shares Perspective on Regan Smith’s Departure from Stanford We sat down with Stanford head coach Greg Meehan to discuss the departure of Regan Smith from Stanford after 1 year to turn pro and go train with Bob Bowman at Arizona State. Meehan is candid as he shares his disappointment and sadness to see Smith leave the Cardinal, not only as an athlete but as a teammate and friend to the rest of the women under his mentorship. But he also shares that even though he doesn't necessarily agree that leaving is the best thing for Smith to do, he understands that she thinks it is the best thing for her career, and Meehan respects and honors that. We also talk to Meehan about how he's dealt with pros turning a new leaf and leaving the Stanford program in the past, why he decided to train Torri Huske for the 400 IM, and what his life is like now that he isn't preparing to be the head Olympic coach.
Ruta Meilutyte on Return to Swimming, Eating Disorder, and Mental Health We sat down with recently crowned 2022 World Champion in the 50 breast, Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania. Ruta dives deep on a lot of topics, first of which is being back in major international competition for the first time in 3 years and managing to medal in both of her events. We then work backward through her dealing with an eating disorder, learning how to take care of her mental health (starting that process just months before the Rio Olympics), and serving a 2-year suspension from racing for missing 3 doping tests. Ruta is candid in her responses and shares knowledge that has come after over a decade at the highest level of competitive sport.
#109 Lewis Burras - The long road back to the podium The last few years have been challenging for Lewis Burras with many mental and physical ups and downs as he sought to find his place in the swimming world. After a few false dawns mixed with some very low periods he found a kindred spirit in coach Zoe Baker and from there has kicked on to have an impressive breakthrough season in 2022.
It’s one that has taken him to a new long course British Record over 100m freestyle and to three silver medals at the Commonwealth Games. In this episode of the pullbuoy podcast Lewis explains how working with a sports psychologist and a change of mindset towards being accountable for his own performance has allowed him to deliver in the water.

How to Help Your Athlete Get Their Skill in a Time Crunch EP 261 It's no secret that sometimes we need an athlete to pick up a skill, and fast. Today Dr. Rebecca Smith talks about the ins and outs of helping an athlete pick up a skill in a time crunch.
Is it a Mental Block or is She Just Stubborn? EP 260 Coach Rebecca was asked by a gymnastics parent… is it a mental block or is she just being stubborn? Stubbornness is real, and it can be good or it can be really annoying, especially when a parent knows their athlete has a skill and just isn’t doing it. Today, Rebecca shares with parents wondering the same thing how to tell the difference between blocks and stubbornness, and what you should and shouldn’t do to help.
Katie Grimes on Racing Katie Ledecky, Open Water, and Not Fully Tapering Until 2024 We sat down with Katie Grimes, the youngest Olympian from the 2020 Tokyo team and most recently the double silver medal winner in Budapest. Grimes admits that while she is pleased with her two 2nd place finishes in the 400 IM and 1500, she isn't satisfied. Grimes is looking toward the 2024 Olympic Games and winning gold in Paris, with such a laser focus that she has decided with her coach, Ron Aitken, that she won't fully taper for a meet until then (not even world championships). Grimes also discusses how she improved in training and racing since last year at the Olympic Trials and the Games themself, where she placed 4th in the 800 free. The young distance swimmer has also started dipping her toes into open water, competing in the 10K in Budapest as well as preparing for the upcoming open water Jr World Champs in September.
Adam Peaty Describes Lows and Highs of Commonwealth Games We sat down with Adam Peaty, the breaststroke legend that most recently has completed his long course gold medal collection with a 50 breast win at the 2022 Commonwealth Games. Peaty discusses the devastation of missing the podium in the 100 breast in Birmingham and how he bounced back to not only medal in the 50 breast, but win the only title that had eluded him his entire career.
SwimSwam Breakdown: Chalmers Media Woes, Peaty Misses Podium, & Aussie Relay WR This week on the SwimSwam Breakdown, we discuss Kyle Chalmers' reaction to Australian tabloid media, Adam Peaty missing a 100 breast podium for the first time in nearly a decade, and the Australian women surprise smashing the world record in the 800 free relay.
#108 2022 Commonwealth Games Review - From the sublime to the ridiculous in Birmingham It was a tremendously exciting week of racing in Birmingham at the Commonwealth Games, which generated a fantastic atmosphere in the sparkly new Sandwell Aquatic centre. It was as usual a display of Australian strength in the pool but the home nations acquitted themselves well.
On this review podcast, Steve and Katie consider events in the pool from the dominance of Ben Proud to the extensive medal winning exploits of Tom Dean, the finest farewell that Ross Murdoch could have wished for and much more. Also on the agenda was the Australian women's fearsome freestyle contingent, the Kyle Chalmers media storm, and some bizarre medley relay goings on.

Torpedo Swimtalk Podcast with Janelle Pallister - Olympian, Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist and High Performance Coach Can we learn from elite and professional swimmers in our sport? I believe we can! And today's guest on Torpedo Swimtalk Podcast shares many insights from that very vantage point.As Janelle Elford, she shared in the dominance of Australian middle distance freestyler's of the late 80's and early 90's, culminating in a gold, silver and bronze medal at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in Auckland.  As Janelle Pallister, she coaches alongside Michael Bohl on the Gold Coast working with the high performance swimmers from Griffith University - the likes of Emma McKeon, Kaylee McKeown and Mack Horton to name a few - and is currently on the Swimming Australia coaching team in Birmingham for these Commonwealth Games. She is also mother and coach of up and coming Australian swimmer Lani Pallister, who scored a bronze in the 1500m in Budapest last month.So as you can see, Janelle has a truckload of experience to share with us from a swimming and coaching point of view. She is humble, down to earth and I have a feeling the swimmers she works with admire her perspective.Click on the link to connect with Janelle:InstagramFacebookLinkedInClick on the link to connect with Torpedo Swimtalk:WebsiteFacebookInstagramLinkedInNewsletterLeave us a review
Matthew Sates Has The Head To Wear The Crown “Hey Matthew, where’s the fire?” Olympics. Check. World Cup wins. Check. NCAA champ. Check. Goes pro. Check.
Sure feels like Matthew Sates’ is on a mission to do it all quickly, and he pretty much has.
The past year has been a whirlwind. He’s had 5 different training squads, and now he’s touring more as he learns from the best and makes a plan for his build toward Paris 2024.
Why the moves? How fast does he think he could go in a 500yd free if he took it out? What’s his 400 free race plan for Commonwealth Games?

#107 - From the demands of Delhi to gold in Glasgow- Commonwealth Games memories with Hannah Miley To say that the difference between Hannah Miley's experiences at the Commonwealth Games of 2010 and 2014 is huge is not an understatement. While the former brought with it the challenges of the environment, the latter imposed a whole different set of pressures.
In the final episode of the Commonwealth Games Memories podcast series for 2022, Hannah pulls no punches as she describes dealing with the very different demands of staying fit enough to swim in Delhi and the weight of being the poster girl for Scotland at a home games in Glasgow.

#263 Katie Robinson talks trailblazing in coaching + Duel in the Pool Katie Robinson is the Director of Swimming at Northwestern University where she leads both programs. Coach Robinson was just named to her first Team USA coaching staff, being named an Assistant Coach for the Duel in the Pool.
Northwestern qualified 15 athletes (9 Women, 6 Men) for NCAA Championships last year. The Women finished 18th, the Men 32nd.
Her coaching experience prior included positions at the University of Pacific, Rutgers, Virginia, and Tulane where she got to learn from some of the best coaches in the world.
As an athlete, she swam at Texas where she was a 3x Big 12 Champion in the 200 Fly.
"There's plenty of head coaches that are men that coach women's programs and there's no question about can they handle a women's program so I'd love to change the narrative..of course women can coach men... " - Katie Robinson

Torpedo Swimtalk Podcast with Rob Kent - Canadian Masters Swimming Champion and Swim Entrepreneur Swimming entrepreneur and masters swimmer champion Rob Kent joins us in this episode of  Torpedo Swimtalk PodcastHailing from Toronto Canada, we had a long ranging chat about Rob's swimming, first as a Canadian National Swimmer, his epic open water swim races as a masters swimmer and the training he does in the pool. Lay over that, his founding of the L.O.S.T. swimming group, which sparked him to start the Global Swim Series and due to Covid, has now pivoted into the inaugural Race the Legends camp and race later in the year.  And as a little side project, he was General Manager of the Toronto Titans ISL Team. This guy loves swimming! In the ocean, in lakes and in the pool. Rob's passion for H2O comes through in each word he speaks, and I love that he has the same passion for promoting participation in open water swims as he does for the elite swimmers in the pool at ISL.Listen in to this great chat with this legend of swimming.

How Has 17-Year-Old Ksawery Masiuk Become One of the Top Backstrokers in the World? We sat down with 3x 2022 European Jr Champ and 2022 world champs bronze medalist, Ksawery Masiuk. The 17-year-old Polish backstroke has quickly risen the ranks as one of the premier talents in the world, posting PRs in Budapest of 52.5 and 24.4 in the 100 and 50. Just days later, he turned around and won both events in Bucharest (Euro Jr Champs) as well as the 200 back (PR 1:56.6) and went a PR in the 100 free (48.3) leading off Poland's bronze medal mixed 400 free relay. Masiuk discusses what his training is like back in Warsaw, saying he typically does 5-6k per practice with a blend of 200 pace and sprint work. He also reveals that he doesn't like having time goals because it would put unnecessary pressure on himself; he just tries to have fun when he swims. Masiuk will be back in action at the 2022 European Champs in August which will take place in Rome, swimming the same lineup of 50-100 back that he did in Budapest. Masiuk plans to attend NC State in the United States, but not until after the 2024 Paris Olympics.

#125 w/ Bob Seebohar on Metabolic Efficiency: Learn to Burn More Fat during Endurance Exercise #125 was an awesome interview with Bob Seebohar talking about ways to become a better endurance athlete through nutrition. Adding in different nutrition protocols can help you become a healthier individual, become a more metabolically efficient athlete, and likely to improve body composition.  To be clear, Bob does not promote a Keto Diet and we dive into this topic of going too low on carbohydrates.  We talk a lot on 1) training modalities and how training intensity influences different energy burn rates,  2) how much of improving fat burning is training vs daily nutrition 3) Symptoms you are too much of a Carb burner 4) Improving body composition 5) When do you start to see your cross-over point Check out more with Bob below! https://www.enrgperformance.com/bob-seebohar https://www.allaroundsnackco.com/ https://www.metabolicefficiency.org/

#105 Commonwealth Games Memories - Recalling a challenging assignment to Delhi 2010 with Lizzie Simmonds It was a Commonwealth Games like no other when they travelled to the sub-continent for the 2010 edition. While India put on a great spectacle, the cohort of swimmers was beset by an illness that swept through the teams, making it as much a test of resilience as it was speed in the water.
Lizzie Simmonds was a medal winning member of Team England that year and recalls a games that presented a completely new challenge.

100 Fly World Champion Torri Huske Has Been Training for the 400 IM We sat down with world champion Torri Huske, fresh off of her 100 fly win in Budapest. Huske takes us back to Tokyo where she finished 4th in the 100 fly final and how that motivated her this entire year to come back on top.

Huske also discusses her love/hate relationship with the 50 free, her NCAA lineup, and managing an enormous event schedule throughout a 6-8 day championship meet.

We pick up the Commonwealth Games memories thread in Manchester to get his memories of the 2002 edition before moving to Melbourne in 2006, as Brett recalls suit malfunctions and health scares that led him to think he was cursed. It’s not all bad memories though with two silvers and a bronze to his name and the chance to bring the curtain down on his career in his home pool while swimming with some of the icons of Australian swimming.

Brooks Curry Seizes the Moments If we could go back and buy stock in Brooks Curry, we’d be rich.
Fewer swimmers have a hotter hand right now. Makes Olympic team (wins gold on relay). SEC champ (beats a Dressel meet record). Pulls the double at NCAAs 50/100 free. Earns individual swim at Worlds (makes final, 5th, goes 47).
He just keeps getting faster, and is proving time after time to have great swims when it matters most.
So, what’s the secret to Brooks’ success? Will LSU become a powerhouse? What inspired his infamous mullet?
Listen as we go into the mind of Brooks Curry.

E118 - ADAM BARRETT: Returning to Elite Swimming On this week's episode of the Propulsion Swimming Podcast, we are talking to Wycombe District swimmer, Adam Barrett.
Having represented his country with distinction, including winning Gold Medals at the 2014 European Championships and Commonwealth Games, Adam Barrett is the British record-holder in the 100m Butterfly (Short Course). He retired from elite swimming in 2017, only to embark on one of the more inspiring returns to the top tier of swimming that included a Master's World Record along the way.
He completed his return to the elite level of the sport in 2021 after being selected to swim for Energy Standard in ISL, and will be representing England at this summer's Commonwealth Games in Birmingham
We speak to Adam about how flexible he's had to be in his training while returning to elite swimming, his tips for training during public swim sessions and his expectations this summer.
On top of this, we also talk about his current adventure as a head coach of his local swimming club, how he inspires his swimmers without comparing them to his own achievements in the sport and what advice he'd give to other former swimmers just starting out on their coaching career!

E119 - RNLI x BSA: Joining Forces to Reduce Drowning On this week's episode of the Propulsion Swimming Podcast, we are joined by the RNLI and Black Swimming Association (BSA).
The RNLI and the Black Swimming Association (BSA) have joined forces with the shared goal of reducing drownings by influencing improved safety on and near the water. By working together they hope to reach as many people as possible of African, Caribbean and Asian heritage in the UK and Ireland, with vital water safety messaging, which has been proven to save lives.
We discuss with Seren Jones (BSA) and James Woodhouse (RNLI) the work to two organisations are doing together to reduce drowning, the summer safety messaging of float to survive, and the research being conducted to disprove the theory that black people have heavy bones and can't float.

Tess and Judy Bird, Daughter and Mother Swimming in Connecticut, New England Conversations that flow through the water, from mother to daughter and back again, almost dream-like. In this podcast I am in conversation with Tess and Judy Bird, both in New England, daughter and mother, both swimmers, sometimes together, most often not. Judy is a life-long swimmer, former life-guard, with an early excitement about open water that has stayed with her since forever. Tess too is a life-long swimmer.
They share swimming stories with me. Judy – of being in the ocean beyond the breakers, floating, between air and water, where there is a lot of peace. Of swimming in Hawaii with a mother whale and her pup. Of swimming in the Farmington River, going fast and slow all at once, slow on the surface and fast when looking down, an acceleration and deceleration that is completely of the senses, in the mind. Tess talks of a nearby swimming hole by the side of the road in Connecticut where she went with her brother for a spontaneous winter dip, ice cold but before it completely iced over, recovering in the car afterwards. And in childhood of a snake in a deep-nature pond full of pond-life, getting out of the water so quickly to save herself from this creature. Of a water-loving labrador who towed her and her brother around the pond when they were very young. Both Judy and Tess muse on what it has meant to them across the years, swimming, and swimming together, sharing the dreamlike conversations that you have sometimes when in open water. Swimming across a generation. The music is Noe Noe and Watercool Quiet, by Blue Dot Sessions.

The defining moment of Michael Klim's swimming career Michael Klim was ranked #1 in the 200 Freestyle going into the 1996 Olympics. He failed to make the Finals.
Klimy then stopped trying to swim like Alex Popov and began to build his own stroke.
He innovated swimming with his beautiful straight arm freestyle technique and finishing his races with a dolphin kick into the wall.

Straight Arm Freestyle Technique with Michael Klim Michael Klim discusses his straight arm freestyle technique and how it came to be.
He talks about a few drills that helped manifest his new, innovative stroke.
Freestyle with a fly kick. Freestyle with a fly kick with head up. Straight arm freestyle. Straight arm freestyle with head up.

Elijah Winnington Plays to Strengths in Strategic Maneuvering of 400Fr World Title We sat down with Elijah Winnington, the Dean Boxall-trained mid-distance star who won his first 400 free world title in Budapest. Elijah discusses what has changed for him by moving to St. Peters to train with Boxall at the end of 2020 both physically and mentally. He also breaks down his race plan for the 400m free final, which ultimately concluded with him clocking a 3:41.22 for the win.
Jack Bauerle, Coaching Mastery Earned Over 50 Years of Experience I’ve known Jack Bauerle 34 of his 50 years at the University of Georgia. It’s been from the sidelines, and one hard fact has shone through. Jack’s always been invested in the future milestones and successes of the swimmers who have passed through his program. Success in the pool was just one part of the process, the relationship. This is evidenced by the University of Georgia’s swimming alums, who are impressive. (Chris Brearton, as one example, was a UGA breaststroker from the 1990s, and he's now the COO of MGM Studios and USA Swimming’s current Board Chair.) Jack has been a force in the sport and his recent retirement caught me a little off guard. I don’t like the idea of attending a meet and Jack not being on deck.  I’m thankful Jack took the time to do this podcast. We do cover a lot of ground. Jack details his journey in the sport, the coaches who mentored and inspired him, and he hints at what his future might hold. For the unofficial Mayor of Athens it sounds like his experience and wisdom will be put to good use.
Leah Hayes on World Champs Medal, Team USA, and Alopecia We sat down with newly minted bronze medalist and world junior record holder in the 200 IM, Leah Hayes. The 16-year-old member of Team USA walks us through her experience in Greensboro, Croatia, and Budapest that all culminated with a 3rd place finish at the 2022 World Championships. Hayes explains her training style and how she focuses on all strokes to keep her IM and mid-distane-free sharp. Leah also dives into her Alopecia diagnosis and how she has embraced her lack of hair as a result. Hayes says our differences make us who we are and you can see the confidence that the young swimmer now has in and out of the pool.

Kasia Wasick is aging with speed The 50 free is the hardest race in swimming. Why? Details. No room for error.
To be the best in the world, training for the 50 means knowing how to truly go ALL OUT. Over and over. Sure, we are biased sprinters.
That’s why we asked Kasia Wasick what it takes to win a silver medal at Worlds at age 31 (after 4 Olympics and 1 retirement!).
Let’s also give some love to masters swimming for helping Kasia find the sport again after retirement, and the ISL for extending so many careers like Kasia’s.
Enjoy!
