WhatComesNext.Live - Ian Armiger

Ian Armiger is a professional swimming coach, former Director of Swimming at Loughborough University, Great Britain Team Head Coach, and Olympic coach. Ian is, in Tom McCallum's mind, not only one of the greatest sports coaches of all time, but also a "coaches coach". His lifelong passion (obsession?) with what he simply calls #FastSwimming​ allies his unbounded energy and curiosity to learn. Ian is Tom's "go to" around elite performance whether that is in sports or business leadership. The WhatComesNext.Live podcast is recorded and broadcast live.

Coach Conversation with Nick and Jenny - Communication, El Diego and Sports Coaching

This first show is a gentle introduction in which Nick and Jenny get into some topics like the communication skills of coaching, how Jenny's coach "never filled training with the sound of his own voice" and why Nick was gutted about the passing of his footballing hero, El Diego. Get involved, share the things you'd like to hear about and your coaching stories on the themes each week.

Swimming under the Antarctic ice with Lewis Pugh

Swimming under the Antarctic ice with Lewis Pugh

Open-water endurance swimmer Lewis Pugh (UK) became the first person to venture into meltwater beneath the ice sheet of Antarctica on 23 January 2020. Wearing nothing but swimming trunks, cap and goggles, Pugh swam approximately 1 kilometre (0.62 miles) down what is known as a “subglacial river” located near the Russian Novolazarevskaya research station in East Antarctica, in water that was as cold as 0.1 degrees Celsius (32.18 degrees Fahrenheit). The swim, which included passing through a glacial tunnel with ice stalactites and terminated in a “supraglacial river” (i.e., on top of the glacier), lasted for 10m 17s in all.
Hydrotherapy, Overcoming a life changing illness through wild swimming

Hydrotherapy, Overcoming a life changing illness through wild swimming

Hydrotherapy is a story of adaptation, strength & re-wilding set in the raw and beautiful landscapes of Snowdonia National park. Laura has not only overcome a life changing illness through wild swimming, but has also found a greater connection to the natural world. This has ignited her mission to make a stand for the natural environment, and protect wild waters and wild spaces across the UK. 'A Friction Collective production featuring Laura Owen Sanderson' was directed by Fin and Jack Davies, produced by Lewis Smith, shot by Josh Williams and Jack Davies with sound design & music by Paddy Henchman. Colour by Fin Davies. ‘The Making Of’ by Charlie Bush. Find out more about Laura’s incredible research & environmental projects @weswimwild. NB: While restrictions on open water swimming have been lifted in some parts of the UK, this activity still comes with significant risks. With very few lifeguards on duty at the moment, and cold water temperatures, now is not the time to risk your safety, or risk putting any additional strains on emergency services. We really hope that you feel inspired to start planning some wild swimming adventures, but for now we urge you to hold off from participating in any form of open water swimming. Further information is available from the RNLI & Outdoor Swimmer.
