    #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.

    #108 2022 Commonwealth Games Review - From the sublime to the ridiculous in Birmingham

    #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.

    #107 - From the demands of Delhi to gold in Glasgow- Commonwealth Games memories with Hannah Miley

    #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.

    #105 Commonwealth Games Memories - Recalling a challenging assignment to Delhi 2010 with Lizzie Simmonds

    #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.

    #104 - Exploring the "Curse of the Commonwealth Games" with Brett Hawke as we look back at 2002 and 2006

    #104 - Exploring the "Curse of the Commonwealth Games" with Brett Hawke as we look back at 2002 and 2006

    He won three medals in his two appearances for Australia, but the Commonwealth Games were not always plain sailing for Brett Hawke.

    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.
