The podcast is coming back with a roar. I just finished recording a pod that will go up on Tuesday, August 20th that I’m really excited about. I spoke with Cejih Yung, and without spoiling it too much, there’s a lot in there for anyone who works in swimming and wants to make a living.
Punitive measures will only get us so far in breaking the cycle. We must have mechanisms for giving coaches behaviors and actions to replace the harmful way they were coached in the past. It’s not just “the bad guys” who need this. Pretty much all of us are hanging on to some harmful coaching practice from our own athletic experience.
Today I am joined once again by Trever Gray. Trever schools me on a topic that I don't that much about, but should know more: supplements.
We go through the Madisyn Cox case and talk about some of the reasons people take supplements, as well as some of the free resources that are out there for making more informed decisions.
