Two new episodes of Shane Tusup‘s ‘Olympic Darkhorse’ series on YouTube have been uploaded in the last week. The series follows Tusup’s coaching journeys with Italian record-holder Ilaria Cusinato and Hungarian teenager Zsombor Bujdoso, especially with Cusinato’s quest for Olympic glory next year.
In episode 5, Tusup introduces the ‘Darkhorse confessional,’ a segment within this series. He explains that he and his swimmers will answer questions from fans, address comments on their social media pages, and talk more about their training experience and their lives in these confessionals. Episode 5 is, then, Tusup’s confessional, where he talks in-depth about his time in the world of golf prior to this, what it was like getting fully back into swimming and coaching after being removed from the sport for awhile, and what he’s looking forward to in the near future.
In episode 6, we’re back into training footage, where it’s clear that Cusinato is continuing to hit barriers with her strength and stamina levels but is pushing through them. We’ve seen her testing her threshold in the pool in earlier episodes, and now we’re seeing her push her limits in the weight room with some footage of weight training featured heavily in episode 6.
