Coach

CLUB: Nathan DOYLE (AUS) (Athlete, 2 Mar 2018)


Reason: â€œHad asthma as a child, but just generally loved all sport. But the appeal of being in the water, whether at the beach, or in the pool - it was just for me.â€? (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Ambition: "Be the best athlete I can be, both in and out of the field of play. But also build a legacy for the next generation of athletes." (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Memorable: Winning gold in the 100m breaststroke at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Hero: Former international cricketer, Adam GILCHRIST (AUS), and rugby league player, Johnathan THURSTON (AUS). “Both have the qualities I look up to in an athlete. They are the best at what they do, but are still very modest. Great sportsmen, on and off the field.â€? (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Influence: Old coach and mentor, Steve HADLER. “Just all round a great coach and individual. So much character and always has time for you, no matter what.â€? (Athlete, Oct 2017)
Ritual: â€œI listen to one particular song just before walking out on pool deck to race and I only listen to it in that moment - no one knows what that song is.â€? (Athlete, Oct 2017)
