The Sports Sphere Series | Jazz Carlin

The Sports Sphere Series | Jazz Carlin

This episode of The Sports Sphere Webinar Series features Jazmin ‘Jazz’ Carlin, a British swimming sensation who became a double Olympic Silver medallist at the Rio 2016 Games. Born and raised in Swindon into a large sporting family Jazz moved to train in Swansea’s national pool. Whilst in Swansea she became a qualified personal trainer and completed a degree in Business & Accountancy at Swansea University, whilst also coaching at local clubs and schools in her spare time. Jazz was first recognized when she won Bronze at the 2005 European Junior Championships. A period of development occurred before 2009 saw her win her first senior medal at the World Championships and she has subsequently gone onto win medals at both the European Championships and Commonwealth Games as well as being a seven-time welsh record holder. After helping the Great Britain team to a 4x200m Freestyle Relay medal at the 2010 European Championships in Budapest, Carlin ended a barren spell of 36 years for Welsh female swimming medalists at the Commonwealth Games by striking 200m Freestyle silver in Welsh record time. A few days later, Carlin added to her tally in India, becoming the first female Welsh swimmer in 80 years to win two Commonwealth medals at one Game by scooping bronze in the 400m Freestyle. Later that year in 2010 Jazz was announced as one of the six nominees of the BBC Cymru Wales Sports Personality of the Year 2010. Despite this progress, 2011 and 2012 were unfortunate years for Jazz as a series of injuries then illness ruined her chances of competing at London 2012. However, with those two years behind her, Jazz bounced back making her mark on the global stage where she finished a credible fourth in the 400m freestyle at the World Championships, missing out on a bronze by just seven one thousandths of a second. Jazz began her 2015 year with a bang achieving 3 Gold medals at the British Championships in 800m, 400m, and 200m. She has since won Bronze at the World Championships in Kazan in the 800m freestyle, three Silvers and one Gold in the World Cup series, and double Gold in the 800m and 400m freestyle at the European Short Course Championships in Israel. Jazz continued this success into 2016 where Rio qualification was the main focus. Jazz qualified for the Olympics in superb style, winning the British Championships over 200m, 400m, and 800m. Following this success Jazz walked away with 2 Silvers in the 400m and 800m at the European Championships in London on the back of a heavy training period. Less than 3 months until the Games begin Jazz competed at the Mare Nostrum events in Barcelona and Canet where she picked up 4 Golds in the 400m and 800m. Jazz's Olympic journey was nothing short of brilliant where she became the most successful British female swimmer coming away with two Silver medals in both the 400m and 800m freestyle. 2018 saw Jazz carry the flag for Team Wales in the Commonwealth Games Gold Coast opening ceremony, sadly illness affected her performance at the Games. She then tried her hand in the open water discipline which saw Jazz compete at the European Championships and show her endurance and versatility. A concussion and further illness have lead Jazz to take time away from the sport. Since retiring Jazz has concentrated on getting as many individuals in the water as possible, in particular working with Swim Wales on promoting their ‘Learn To Swim’ program which supports the Welsh national objective of making every child a swimmer by the age of 11. This is an ongoing dream and motivation of Jazz as she feels that swimming should be a life skill on a global scale, not just swimming but general activity for all-round wellbeing. Jazz has also started her own business venture creating an online portal of information to give athletes the fundamentals of swim training, with an expert team around her she also wants to deliver the best advice on getting the best out of herself from nutrition to specific individual training programs.

Her success with 100m backstroke silver and 400m freestyle bronze in the S10 class in Eindhoven was then followed by her first gold with the British 4x100m freestyle relay 34pt quartet.

She made her Paralympic debut at Rio 2016 where she competed in five events, winning relay gold in the women’s 4x100m medley relay (34pts) alongside teammates Claire Cashmore, Steph Slater and Stephanie Millward. The highlight from her individual events was the 100m backstroke S9, where she won bronze. Alice was awarded an MBE for her services to swimming in December of 2016. At the 2018 European Championships in Dublin, Tai stormed to four European titles, adding to her medal haul from the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia, where she won gold and silver.

A stand out performance that has seen her bring home multiple accolades including The Sunday Times Disability Sportswoman of the Year, Sports Journalist Awards Best Achievement in Para Sport, a nomination for the Laureus Sports Awards Disability category and excitingly the first para athlete to win British Swimming’s Athlete of the Year in 2019.

Swimmers Guide to Foam Rolling

Swimmers Guide to Foam Rolling

If you have a foam roller and don't know how to use if properly this video is for you. Foam rolling (self-myofascial release) is great for warming up the body as well as using post-workout. It helps you to increase blood flow to the muscles as well as increasing the range of movement in the joints. Focus on tight, painful spots by applying and holding pressure at that point, breathing in and out until the pain eases, then carry up and down the length of the muscle. It can take up to 15 mins for a full body roll, used regularly it will really help you in the pool. Use your bodyweight as additional pressure to push harder into the foam roller. DO NOT roll over joints or bone and if you have injured areas, let them heal before you deeply roll onto them.
