The SAS and Adam Peaty + insights into coaching - Mel Marshall, Adam's coach

Published on: 17th August, 2021

Big thanks to the Her Spirit Podcast for letting me use this interview. Check out Her Spirit on herspirit.co.uk - your friendly coach in your pocket. But also, I know you'll want to listen to the whole hour of Mel Marshall - she's quite brilliant. So please go to the Her Spirit Podcast too.

I work with Lousie Minchin and Annie Emmerson on the Her Spirit podcast and we were thrilled to have Mel Marshall as a guest during her post Olympic holiday.

Mel has turned into one of the world's most respected coaches. She's helped Adam Peaty to his domination and medal haul but also had other successes in Tokyo which was phenomenal for British Swimming.

She talked brilliantly about coaching in general, her approach to sport and Adam Peaty.

And what are they learning in the run up to the Games. The Podcast lasts around 10 mins and comes out daily, Monday to Friday. I’m also using it to raise money for Maggie’s Cancer Centres to thank them for the help they’ve given my wife and family during her bowel cancer journey.
