SSPC: George Bovell on Why a Holistic Approach to Swim is Vital to Success

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman Hodges 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 Olympic medalist George Bovell to talk about his career in swimming and what he’s learned since. Bovell indulged me with some stories of his swimming days, including the explanation of “the Hammer of Justice” and how it won him an Olympic bronze.

But more importantly, Bovell dives deeper into the human side of swimming (and living). Bovell explains he’s traveled all across the world trying to learn the secrets to existence and divulges where people are making common mistakes in their everyday lives and how we can start to correct these in order to lead a healthier lifestyle mentally and physically.

You have to wonder even with preparation if Coleman really new what he was getting into when we signed up for this interview and how Mel is sitting back with a bag of popcorn waiting to see how this turns out.

George, This is a very interesting, uplifting, and insightful message. It is hoped that people will listen to your ideas and carefully consider how to incorporate “Victory Energy” into their own lives. I really enjoyed this podcast. Great stuff!
