Swim Talk: Peter Andrew, Coach/Father of NAG Record Breaker Michael Andrew

Last night, we did an interview with Peter Andrew, who is the coach and the father of 11-12 National Age Group Record Breaker Michael Andrew. This was a phenomenal interview, as he is able to give both the parent’s perspective as well as a very technical perspective of coaching philosophy. This interview is a bit longer than some we’ve done, but you won’t regret watching the whole thing. Peter gives great insight into his training philosophies that will be interesting to both swim fans, as well as coaches. Here’s a teaser – Michael is usually training about 3 times a week at 2,500 yards each.

We also get some intersting news about where Michael might be taking his talents in the future. Check it out!

Concerned father and coach

Is there anyway of helping the Andrew family stay in the US ?
Congratulations to Michael and his coach. Thanks for confirming my long held belief that kids should not be trained for numerous hours and great distances. Technique should be priority one.

My dad was just like this. LOL
