Additional information

Initially reluctant to take on the 1500m, only shifting to the longer distance after getting a new coach and training program. "My previous coach thought the 1500 metres was too long for me, so I stuck to the 200 and 400. When I started working with my current coach, Vince RALEIGH (AUS), we had a discussion about my future and where I could excel. He believed I could do the 1500m if I was willing to do the work, and I definitely was." (, 31 May 2017)

Listens to a permanent beep sound, that he deliberately forced into his subconscious via a metronome he created himself. "I’m into engineering, so I’m a big sucker for technology. Probably the single most important item for me is a waterproof Finis metronome, which slips under your swim cap. I set it at 72 beats per minute and it ensures I swim with the correct stroke rate, which is all-important in my event." Although he’s not allowed to use the metronome in competition, it is his constant training partner. (, 27 Jul 2016;, 2016)
