Interested in knowing more of the history of Swim Smooth, what influenced our coaching philosophy, what we have in the pipeline and the trials and tribulations of starting a swimming movement? Listen to Paul Newsome's tell-all podcast here with WA Real host Bryn Edwards:

Super Sue & Jason Are Firing Up For The Channel

Here at Swim Smooth, we're very lucky to work with and be around some very inspirational people. Take Sue Oldham and Jason Snell for example:

Sue swam the English Channel in 2010 aged 64 and set a new record for the oldest woman to cover the 32 km distance. However earlier this year American Pat Gallant-Charette successfully took that record from Sue, setting the new record at 66 years.

Not deterred and now 71 years young, "Super" Sue has been training hard and is back into full channel swimming mode. She goes for the crossing in just a few weeks time, setting off from Dover when good weather and tides align.

Jason climbed Mount Everest in 2016 and is aiming to be one of only a handful of people to have climbed Everest and also swum the channel - two amazing feat of endurance. We look forward to asking Jason for the definitive answer to the question Which is harder mate??!

At Swim Smooth we are very lucky to work with and be around some very inspirational people. These two guys are probably the two most inspiring of all. Have fantastic swims Sue & Jason - everyone in Perth and around the world is rooting for you!

If you're lacking a little motivation with your own swimming right now, take a leaf out of Sue and Jason's books - each are regularly knocking out 10-18km training swims right now! That 2k technique set can't be that hard can it?

On Thursday Jason and Sue did a little media work with Channel 10 News and put themselves through some cold water adaption training in the Swim Smooth endless pool. It's only 15C / 58F in their right now! :
