“When we were seven and nine and we were sitting in the car going to training we’d talk about what we would do after we went to the Olympics. It was never one of us, it was always going to be both of us.” – Cate Campbell on sister Bronte. SwimVortex takes a look at the approach of siblings to a shared target on the way to world titles and the Rio 2016 Olympic Games

Cate / Simon go open hand streamline off the start. Try it for a week.

Reminds me of the film ‘A League of Their Own’; two sisters, one with the natural advantage and one with the hunger… hope it’s a happy ending.

Personal Best,

OMG! That is so apt. I watched that movie several times, and Campbell sisters are just like Geena Davies and Madonna. Tom Hanks was just so good and Madonna, not a good actor, was actually pretty decent. This used to be my playground…..

Anyway, this is what I wrote at Swimvortex in June 2013:

“Get Campbell to spend few months on a sprint clinic with Jacco Verhaeren, and she’ll be swimming 52.5 already”

I was wrong in that she didn’t need Jacco to swim 52.3, but I couldn’t believe it when my wish came true and Jacco was announced as Australia’s new head coach in October that year 🙂
