Great article Bill – and excellent work on giving good coaches the recognition that they deserve.

I was amongst those listening to you speak at DGS in Hong Kong many many years ago. Your talk helped inspire me to make my first national team there – and I want to take this opportunity to thank you!

Finally – thanks to the Swimvortex team for consistent journalistic quality.

This is a great read, and it is refreshing to have more and more great female swimming coaches training world beating swimmers!

great article. How do i find what the “10 winning points of difference” are?

Jman, I will ask for further guidance on the theme.

Great article and I hope things are changing. But I was just at the ASCTA clinic and I was told from a lot of women coaches that they are feeling overlooked, left out and unheard. It takes an effort to change a culture. More women speakers at conferences, more women coaches into the development and mentorship programs, inclusion by the “old guard”, all of that will help. But it takes time.

Yes, morrow3, women underrepresented throughout swimming, deck, board and blazer.

I’ve had the pleasure, nee pain, of being coached by both Bill Sweetenham and Dr Ralph Richards.

I no longer swim – But I am still in a male dominated industry, this article reminds me [that the issues remain].

morrow3 not easy in Australia in such a chauvinistic culture but they are certainly out there. Another is Leanne Speechly who has done an outstanding job at Abbotsleigh in very short time.

thanks morrow3, good to see what’s in the roots – would be great to see some of them float up through the ranks of representation as opportunity and then achievement arises and is made to arise
