Watch a Two-Time Olympic Gold Medalist Train a TV Star for an Open Water Swim

How good is an Endless Pool for swim training? It’s the pool that two-time Olympic Gold Medalist Rebecca Adlington chose to train British TV star Jason Done for his upcoming open-water charity swim.

Jason, better known as schoolteacher Tom Clarkson on BBC One’s Waterloo Road, is prepping for the one-mile Great Manchester Swim to raise funds for Royal Manchester Children's Hospital Charity. Adlington, who won two Gold Medals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, gave him some pointers in the Endless Pool Elite at Royles, one of the UK's premier independent Triathlon retailers.

Using Endless Pools’ video capture equipment, Rebecca does a close analysis of Jason’s stroke to explain how he can swim more quickly and efficiently. (Many Endless Pool owners use our swim mirrors as a simpler/additional tool for real-time feedback.) As a bonus, she shares her Top 3 Beginners’ Tips for open-water swim training.

The Royal Manchester Children's Hospital provides bone marrow transplants, burn treatment, and critical care for kids and teens. The RMCH Charity supports patients and their families in the event of prolonged stays. If you can, please donate to support Jason’s swim for the RMCH Charity.
