Ok a lot of the naysayers and cynics keep making oblique swimming references as if this is something worng. So lets firm it up. Who is the coach who has a swimming background and why do some think this is a bad thing? Does he have a bad rep or something? :confused:
 
Tim Kerrison

Worked with the Thorpedo a while back.

Was hired by British Swimming,(2005 per a google search) then Shane Sutton recruited him as a performance analyst for Sky (or British cycling, maybe even both).

In 2007, the French sports newspaper L'Équipe claimed that Thorpe showed "abnormal levels" of two banned substances in a doping test.[233][234] Thorpe denied the charges and the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) later confirmed that they had investigated Thorpe in the past, for abnormal levels of testosterone and luteinizing hormone (LH), but had dismissed the result.[235][236] FINA dropped its investigation and closed the case.[237]

Nothing's wrong with him. Richie Porte was a Triathlete before becoming a pro cyclist. He has ambitions to compete at RIO 2016 as a triathlete. SKY as a goodwill gesture have hired Kerrisson to help him maintain his swimming abilities. They are also on the hunt for a long distance running coach and will be signing one next year.

The minute you mention Triathlete in here it is going to cause a few comments directed to your posts. Just wait for it.

I am glad you explained it first before the attacks begin.
