    Tom Derbyshire's Long Distance Swimming Tips & Tricks

    Tom Derbyshire's Long Distance Swimming Tips & Tricks

    Hey, I’m Tom Derbyshire and I am the latest former GB international swimmer to join the SwimPath team. I recently retired from swimming after 10 years in the sport. Over those years I represented Great Britain at both junior and senior level as well as England at the Youth Commonwealth Games in 2015.

    Some of my career highlights include winning European Junior gold and silver at the 2016 European Juniors, these were in the 1500m and 800m freestyle respectively, along with winning gold at the Youth Commonwealth Games in Samoa. I was also able to represent Great Britain at the 2018 European Championships in Glasgow.

    For the last four years of my career I was able to train alongside Olympians and World Champions at the British Swimming National Centre based in Bath. For me, this was a dream come true and I was able to learn and train with the best whilst pursuing my own goals.

    As a distance ‘specialist’, my best bit of advice to any younger swimmers looking to tackle the longer events would be to really practise consistently hitting your pace in training and to make everything as even as possible. When racing the longer events, it is important that you don’t start your race to fast and that you are able to maintain a consistent pace throughout. There is no worse feeling then realising that you have gone out too fast after the first 200m or so. You should always aim to finish the race as strong or even stronger than how you started.

    I am looking forward to working with SwimPath and helping other achieve their goals in the sport.

    European Games Medalist joins SwimPath!!

    European Games Medalist joins SwimPath!!

    Hello, I'm Charlie Attwood, former GB international swimmer and breaststroke specialist. In 2013 I qualified for my first international junior team where I would compete at the European youth Olympic festival held in Utrecht, Netherlands. I came away with a bronze in the 200m breaststroke and then in the 100m breaststroke I ended up winning Gold.

    Later, in 2015 I qualified for the European Games held in Baku, Azerbaijan where I won bronze in the 100m Breaststroke and then silver as part of two relays. The same year I competed at the 2015 world junior championships held in Singapore, this meet didn’t go as planned but I did make the final my events which I was happy with.

    I then moved training programmes from my home club Taunton Deane to the British swimming national centre in Bath where I would be training alongside Olympians and world medallists ahead of the 2016 Olympic year. I didn’t make the Olympic team, but I did end up competing at the 2016 European championships in London the same year.

    My favourite achievement was winning my individual medal in Baku at the European games. I am now working with SwimPath to help other swimmers achieve their goals. A top tip for you breaststrokers to aid your catch is to scull as much as you can in training, as this will strengthen your in sweep and out sweep to maximise your pull.
