Interview with Jack Buckner, British Swimming
The series 'Great British Bosses' by Anything but Footy (https://www.anythingbutfooty.com) profiles the women and men responsible for sport in this country - many at national governing bodies - who manage teams, staff, budgets, grass-root participation and overseeing those medal moments at Olympic, Paralympic and elite level. They met in Loughborough with British Swimming Chief Executive Jack Buckner. After a disappointing performance in the pool at the home Olympics of 2012, and then allegations of bullying in the Paralympic programme, followed by the swimmers best medal return at the Rio Olympics for 100 years - it's been a tumultuous few years. Jack took over in May 2017 and he is asked what the first thing he changed was. He tells us how disappointing it is that drugs in sport - particularly his first love of athletics where he won World, European and Commonwealth medals in the 5,000m in the mid 80's - is still dominating headlines but how he backed his 'team' for standing up to alleged drug cheats in swimming. And Adam Peaty, Tom Daley and Alice Tai all get a mention too
Responding to a Child's Disclosure of Abuse
This NSPCC Learning animation shows you how to respond when a child tells you about experiencing abuse. Visit NSPCC Learning for more information and resources https://www.nspcc.org.uk/listen
It is crucial that adults who work with children are able to respond supportively in the moment a child chooses to disclose, and to interact and communicate in a way that helps children feel listened to. The NSPCC’s Let Children Know You’re Listening animation outlines the key interpersonal skills that adults should use when a child discloses abuse and/or neglect, which can help make it clear they are listening and taking the child seriously.
These skills are grouped into three simple directions: 1. show you care, help them open up 2. take your time, slow down 3. show you understand, reflect back.

Before flying to Dublin where he was opening speaker at the Swim Ireland Performance ConferenceWayne, Wayne Goldsmith did a great coaches clinic in Willand with James Marshall from Excelsior, integrating classroom type coach development with hands on, practical learning activities where coaches were “learning by doing”.

Swimming's Laws Of Motion | 2019 Tour
In 1982, Dr Ernie Maglischo wrote what was then the “bible” of Swimming “Swimming Faster”. In that book he discussed the role of Bernoulli’s Principle in swimming propulsion and the concept of lift, pressure differentials, the way the human hand and forearm is like the wing of a bird or a plane etc.
Ernie sent Wayne Goldsmith a draft manuscript of his “Swimming Fastest” book in 2000 to look over before it was published.
Here are a few lines from that actual manuscript: “ I believe the evidence that Bernoulli’s Principle is not involved in swimming propulsion is quite compelling.
I believe also that the evidence that is currently available does not support the notion that propulsion is the result of forming and shedding vortices. In my opinion, Newton’s Third Law of Motion, the law of action-reaction offers the most likely explanation for human swimming propulsion”.
The man who introduced Bernoulli to the swimming world had the courage and integrity to say “I got it wrong! Bernoulli has nothing to do with it”. Wayne Goldsmith: "I am literally stunned that it appears swimming educators are still teaching Bernoulli to new coaches & swimming teachers. Please STOP! You are teaching a concept that does not apply, confusing to learn & is just WRONG!"
