SS Podcast Episode 20 / Apply Now: May 2020 Coach Ed Course - Mallorca Spain

** Coaches: Interested in attending our 3 Day Coach Ed course in Mallorca? See full info below. **

Episode 20: Tom Gregory - youngest ever English Channel Swimmer (at just 11yrs old!)

We are back with Season 2 of the Swim Smooth podcast and boy-o-boy do we have a great show for you! Have you ever thought about swimming the English Channel? The busiest shipping lane in the world; typically 14-17 degrees celsius and non-wetsuit over a distance that frequently extends to 50km due to the current and tides that prevail in this stretch of water? Yes, no, maybe? Now, imagine taking on this adventure in the middle of the night at the age of 11 years old. Well, that is exactly what our guest did way back in September 1988 to set the world record at the age of 11 years and 333 days! Totally amazing - please welcome Tom Gregory to the show!
