Sprint Legend James Magnussen Floats Idea of Dean Boxall Coaching in US NCAA

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman HodgesGarrett McCaffrey, and Gold Medal Mel Stewart, SwimSwam welcomes both the biggest names in swimming that you already know, and rising stars that you need to get to know, as we break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

We sat down with sprinting legend James Magnussen to unpack the 100 free final and ended up unpacking the entire Olympic Games. We talk about most of the big races that have happened so far and specifically Australia’s golden moments. We are used to seeing the Aussie trials come in March and then them not race again until the Games, but James is relieved that the system has finally changed and it seems to be paying off, with stars like Kaylee McKeown and Ariarne Titmus maintaining their dominance from Trials to the Games.
Maggie notes that Australia has one a gold medal each day of competition so far and has a good shot to continue the trend for the rest of the meet, perhaps putting them in a position to challenge the US for total swimming golds.
But MOST importantly, Magnussen points out that Dean Boxall, who we all now know is quite passionate about his athletes, would be a perfect fit for the NCAA in America. Well commentors, now is your chance. Which University in the NCAA would you want to see Boxall coach?

Never give those Aussies inch! Don’t let James and his dreamy eyes and ample chest influence your headlines into saying they are good!!

(Lol, I mean they have been having a much better meet than I expected / had hoped so far, women’s 4×2 aside. Women’s 200 back, 100 free and 50 free will probably determine how their whole meet is perceived unless they win one of the medleys.)

Distant. I wouldn’t say distant. We only have 35 swimmers there. Doesn’t the USA have more than 50? For a country of 25 million we are doing very well.

How does another country dominate if they aren’t the top country dominating?
