Make the Bold Move - Hector Pardoe

Make the Bold Move - Hector Pardoe

This podcast episode features an inspiring story and conversation with Hector Pardoe, GB olympic marathon swimmer. Hector explains the huge risk he took in moving to France to pursue his goal of making it to the Olympics and developing as a human and as a swimmer. He forged his own path, going against the crowd and took on the changes of a new coach, new language, new environment and ultimately took control of his own growth and it paid off. Against the odds from years before the Olympics, he qualified and made it to Tokyo. He tells us of the difficulties within the Olympic final and how he is facing who he is as a person before and after such a testing experience. Hector is full of ambition and drive as a swimmer yet is also dedicated to giving and exploring the sport in its entirety. Thank you Hector!

Q+A Session with Kevin Pickard

Q+A Session with Kevin Pickard

Propulsion Swimming and AP Race Clinics have launched a new live-streaming series aimed at supporting Swim Parents! One of the most important support networks of any young swimmer is their parents, but for too long this area has been under-resourced and under-supported. How many sessions a week should your swimmer be doing? Should they drop other sports to focus fully on swimming? We believe that every parent should have the capacity to be able to ask these questions and work out what's best for their swimmer/s, as well as learning from others who have gone through the challenges you or your child are currently facing. This epsiode features Kevin Pickard, Innovation Director and lead of the parent's support station at AP Race Clinics, which was founded by Adam Peaty and Ed Baxter! 00:00 Intro; 02:01 About Propulsion Swimming; 03:23 About Kev + AP Race Clinics; 04:40 Why Is Parent Support Important?; 07:50 How Many Times Should A 14 Year Old Be Swimming?; 10:18 Should A 14 Year Old Be Doing Gym Work?; 16:35 How As Parents Can We Support Our Child For Failure?; 20:20 My Swimmer Wants To Quit But They've Got Huge Talent.
