Coaches Of The Male Olympic Marathon Swimmers

Coaches Of The Male Olympic Marathon Swimmers

The Olympic marathon swimmers have spent years waking up early, going to the pool to swim lap after lap, and training up to 6 hours a day.

The sacrifice is clearly evident.

But there are also men and women who have spent years and, in many cases, decades waking up early, going to the pool and sacrificing much in the pursuit of Olympic success.

These are the coaches of the 25 male open water swimmers qualified for the Olympic 10K Marathon Swim on August 10th in the Serpentine in Hyde Park.
