Team GB star Adam Peaty visited Volair Huyton this week to coach the next generation of talented local swimmers.
The three-time Olympic gold medallist and eight-time world champion brought AP Race Clinics to Knowsley on Wednesday August 9.
Founded in 2019, AP Race Clinics aims to inspire swimmers, parents and coaches.
Adam holds the world record in the 50m and 100m breaststroke and was joined by a highly talented support team including Ed Baxter, a gold medallist at the 2015 Youth Commonwealth Games and a multiple British champion, as well as additional coaches and a psychologist.
The event consisted of four stations set up across the day, three for swimmers and one for parents, as well as gym and racing edge stations, where participants received expert advice from strength and conditioning coaching to psychological support.
AP Race Clinics also offered local club coaches the chance to attend for free and receive mentoring from one of the leading senior coaches in the country.
Darren Simpkin, Volair Managing Director, said “We are hugely excited to welcome Adam and his team to Volair Huyton. This is a fantastic opportunity for promising swimmers from the local community to receive the best possible training and advice.
“Adam has an incredible record and his number of medals speak for themselves. The fact that Adam opted to use Volair Huyton is a testament to our state-of-the-art facilities.”
