After competing for Great Britain in the pool for nearly 10 years; a career that saw him rise to being Double Commonwealth Champion, British Record holder, Commonwealth Record holder, World Medallist, European Medallist and Olympic Finalist, Chris Cook hung up the trunks and retired from international swimming and now works with businesses, performance teams, schools and organisations to assist them in pursuit of their goals, inspiring a world class mind-set and encouraging people to follow their passion.
Chris has built an impressive reputation as a motivational speaker and is also the director and owner of Swim Buddies Swimming Academy. In this interview with Chris, Sid and I wanted to learn about what it takes to have a Double Olympian mindset, and how he's transitioned from both the pool to business, and the pool to stage.
