Short Axis Stroke BR & FLY

Zoom session from their online Coach Development Program published May 2020 and presented by Miguel Angel López who has been exposed to some of the World’s best swim coaches and technicians. His home coach was the National Head coach in Spain for many years, Quique Martinez Marrero. In Mission Bay he trained under coaches of the calibre of Mark Schubert, Larry Liebowitz, Walt Schlueter – precursor of many stroke drill techniques - Michael Lohberg and Orjan Madsen and two of the first physiology experts to really dig into lactate analysis and science, Jack Roach and Steve Bultman. He later worked at the University of Florida where he worked with more outstanding world class coaches of the calibre of Randy Reese, Mitch Ivey, Skip Foster, and Kevin Thorton. His specialty has always been creating a swimming culture at places where there was no high level before. From the moment he started as a head coach in 1992 at a small northwestern region of Spain – Galicia - that had never had Olympic swimmers before, he built the programs to the point where they had three Olympic swimmers and three Paralympic medalists, to having eight swimmers qualified for Rio 2016 in Thailand. The programs Miguel has headed have quickly embraced the culture of quality training and competition. Miguel currently runs the FINA Program for the South East Asia area, with over 150 national records for 18 different countries, and a high level of satisfaction. He also run the competition program at Thanyapura sports club, in Phuket, Thailand
