6x Ironman World Champion Dave Scott On Stroke Technique

If you're a triathlete you'll know Dave Scott as a six time winner of the Hawaii Ironman World Champs and a legend of the sport. Dave is now a highly successful swim and triathlon coach based in Boulder Colorado, working with prominent professional and age group athletes.

On our road trip across America, Paul Newsome met up with Dave and they took a little time to discuss stroke technique on camera for you, including what stroke style you should be aiming for, what works best for triathletes without a swimming background and some of Dave's experiences of trying to shake Mark Allen off his toes in races! Watch the clip here:


A big thanks to Dave and Jane for hosting us for a few days in Boulder and putting us through some hard sets in the pool too! You can find out more about Dave's coaching at: www.davescottinc.com

Finis Neptune Waterproof MP3 Player

We've also just received a good stock of the new Finis Neptune MP3 player from Finis. We tested the new model a few weeks ago and were blown away by the sound quality. This is a brilliant player taking the old SwiMP3 model and redesigning it from scratch, including a new speaker technology which makes all the difference to sound quality and a new easy to use screen based interface.

Worlds colliding... :)

Dave Scott's videos on swimming technique on YouTube are just great, and down to earth in the same manner as SwimSmooth. SwimSmooth and Dave seems to have the same take on swimming.

On YouTube, Dave proposes three specific drills to improve freestyle: "high swingers", hesitation on recovery and quick catch. It would be interesting to see SwimSmooth's comments on that triade.
