    Swimming’s Renaissance Man: Brett Hawke

    Swimming’s Renaissance Man: Brett Hawke

    Few have achieved success in so many different roles in the sport like Brett Hawke.

    A 5x Olympian who ushered in an era of Australian sprinting prowess, Brett would have had his place in history when he hung up his suit and goggles as the Aussie record holder, Commonwealth medalist, and Olympic finalist.

    But things were just beginning, as Brett would go on to coach the greatest sprint group of all time at Auburn and cement his legacy as an expert on world class speed.

    Today, he hosts the wildly popular and insightful podcast, Inside with Brett Hawke. Enjoy!

    The Ultimate Swim-a-thon

    The Ultimate Swim-a-thon

    For many people, “doing a 10k” is an achievement on foot accompanied by a race bib and a finisher t-shirt. For Joe and John Zemaitis, however, it’s a sometimes 3x daily open water swim that takes an average 3 hours to complete!

    The Swim Brothers recently completed the “Ultimate Swim-a-thon” to raise awareness and money to promote water safety, drowning prevention and competitive and open water swimming. It was a double victory for the duo whose open water achievements include the English, North, and Catalina channel crossings to name just a few. The Brothers exceeded their fundraising target of $10,000 in partnership with the USA Swimming Foundation, and completed the monumental swim effort 5 days ahead of schedule by swimming an open water 10k in every US state in just 25 days!

    If that doesn’t make you feel lazy, we want to hear your story!

    Enjoy!

    Zac Stubblety-Cook Has Conquered It All

    Zac Stubblety-Cook Has Conquered It All

    He’s the Olympic Champion, World Record Holder, World Champion and now Commonwealth Champion.

    Seems like the perfect mic drop moment for a 23 year old to swim like a frog off into the sunset.

    But while we’ll never understand the stroke, this guy loves swimming fast breaststroke, and he’s keen to take the WR even lower. Somewhat surprisingly, it may be his freestyle training that gives him the fitness to close faster than anyone in the field. Also, why is freestyle the only stroke that has events longer than 200m?

    Zac thinks he could be world champ at the 300m or even 400m BR. Sounds like a promoter needs to make this happen.

    There’s the challenge. Any takers?

    Enjoy our chat with Zac!

    Matthew Sates Has The Head To Wear The Crown

    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?

    Listen and find out!

    Enjoy!

    Brooks Curry Seizes the Moments

    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.

    Kasia Wasick is aging with speed

    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!
