Prior to the start of the SC World Champs, FINA is hosting the World Aquatics Convention. The Swimming Coaches Golden Clinic is the part of the World Aquatics Convention in which information and knowledge is shared throughout the coaching world.

Headliners include Bob Bowman, David Marsh, Ben Titley, and Bill Furniss. 

Never heard of this? Check out our post on Yuri Suguiyama’s presentation from 2012 where he spoke about Katie Ledecky’s training leading up to the London Olympics. Yuri won’t be talking at this one. Instead he will be the Men’s Head Coach of Team USA for SC World Champs.
