Episode #153 Laurie Lawrence
Laurie Lawrence is a living legend; undoubtedly, the most passionate swim coach the world has ever seen. Laurie has helped coach, guide, and support Australia at 8 Olympic Games.
In 1956, his father became the manager of Trobruk Pool where the Australian Olympic swim team held training camps. He grew up as a kid being around the very best: Forbes Carlile, Dawn Fraser, and Murray Rose, just to name a few. This was his introduction to the sport of swimming.
As a coach, over 30 swimmers have made the Olympic team under Laurie, including Champions Duncan Armstrong, Jon Sieben, and Stephen Holland.
Laurie has just recently wrote and self published his own book entitled, "Stuff the Silver, We're Going For Gold!".
