Head Coach Duncan Todd In Rio

park-tae-hwan-with-coach-duncan-toddRIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 1 (Yonhap) — Though he may no longer be the world beater in the pool, South Korean swimmer Park Tae-hwan can still be a force when he’s as relaxed and confident as he is now, his coach said Monday.

Duncan Todd told Yonhap News Agency in Rio de Janeiro, the site of this year’s Summer Olympics, that his pupil is in great physical and mental state, with his first race, the 400m freestyle, looming on Saturday.

“His progress has been good, and his training has been of a high level,” Todd said before entering the Olympic Aquatics Stadium for Park’s second training session of Monday. “Part of the reason he’s feeling so confident is that his training has been so good.”

Todd, an Australian native, worked out with Park for six weeks in Cairns, Australia, earlier this year, and then for two more weeks in Jacksonville, Florida, before arriving in Rio on Sunday. The two actually go further back, as Todd, then working under Park’s former coach, Michael Bohl, helped the swimmer prepare for the 2011 world championships and the 2012 London Olympics.

TAS Charity Swimathon 2015 – Rosies

On Saturday November 14, TAS Swimming hosted a Swimathon for swimmers and students at TAS to raise money for the local branch of the charity Rosies – Friends on the Street.

Rosies

 

Rosies is an outreach charity that operates 3 times every week, feeding the homeless. The Cairns branch was established in 1992. Trinity Anglican School already has an association with Rosies, with many of our senior students volunteering to help during the outreach evenings.
This year, students and swimmers at TAS attempted to swim as far as possible in three hours and raise as much money as possible to further support the great work undertaken by Rosies.

 

 

Collectively, all the participants covered a distance of 153.2 km which was a massive effort.

This is equivalent to swimming from the TAS Aquatic Centre south to Bilyana which is 22km north of Cardwell, or north to Port Douglas and return.

Well done in particular to Emma, Ella, Hayden, Adam, Flynn and Joel who all achieved 10,000 metres.
A cheque for all the money raised will be presented to a representative from Rosies on the evening of Friday 4 December.
