Bowman to join British Swimming debrief

11th September 2012

British Swimming has announced that Bob Bowman, former coach of Michael Phelps, will be joining the London 2012 Performance Debrief panel.

Bowman, who coached Phelps from 1996 to 2012, has been part of the US Olympic Swim team for the past three Olympic Games and coached Phelps to a record 22 Olympic medals.

As a consultant for the Sport Performance division of TSE Consulting, he is expected to share his expertise and best practice advice with the panel made up of Conor O’Shea, Thomas Lurz, Craig Hunter and Michael Scott.

David Sparkes, CEO of British Swimming said: “Bob is a coach with a wealth of experience and a proven track record of turning talent and hard work into medal success. We are sure he will make a massive contribution to our review.”

The Debrief Panel has been set up to consider the performance results at the 2012 Games, to determine the reasons for a below medal target performance and identify areas for improvement in preparation for Rio 2016.
