Mel Marshall Law At Loughborough: ‘Put People 1st, Performance Takes Care Of Itself’

Adam Peaty's 57.12 victory in the 100m breaststroke at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games marked the most momentous swim of the year - coach Mel Marshall, inset with Peaty, now aims to have winning ways ripple out to a wider swim world in Britain from the Loughborough 'hub' - main image by Patrick B.

When Melanie Marshall takes to the deck at Loughborough University as head coach come January 1, swimmers will see a former international, a coach – the coach to Adam Peaty – and all the things we know of that led to her landing the job as their mentor. What she wants them to see, Marshall tells SwimVortex in her first interview since being appointed head coach at Loughborough’s National Centre, is a coach who will speak to and work with them one on one. Not so much towing as buoyed by her own experiences as a swimmer, her journey as a coach these past two Olympic cycles and the lessons learned at City of Derby with Peaty and mates, Marshall not only intends to work with the individual in the team but is thinking well beyond the box of her own pool. Loughborough is now a hub from which excellence will ripple out to the far reaches of British swimming
