Welcome to the Effortless Swimming podcast! In the first episode we chat with Olympic backstroker Ashley Delaney. He reveals:

  • How he got started in swimming by accident
  • The one thing he changed in his diet to drop two kilos in weight and start swimming faster times in training
  • Small things he focuses on each lap that made him one of the best underwater kickers Australia has ever seen
  • One change that you can make in a race to conserve your energy and have more speed and power at the end of every race

Ash and I lived together for a year when he was in his final year at high school. He then moved to the Australian Institute of Sport to train and has now moved back to Melbourne, Victoria. Ash has won medals the the Olympics and World Championships in backstroke.
