Industry News: Latest in Speedo Make Waves Podcast Series: A Performance by Ian Crocker

March 19, 2007: In the latest instalment of the successful "Speedo Make Waves" podcast series, Speedo brings you up close and personal with Olympic Gold Medalist and 100m Butterfly World Record Holder Ian Crocker and his guitar.

Now available at and via iTunes, Crocker sat down with James Hickman, British swimmer and five times World Champion, to share some insight into life both in and out of the water. He also treats fans to a special musical performance – he picked up his guitar to play one of his favorite tracks exclusively for the Speedo podcast.

Crocker talks about his love of music and the guitar, photography, classic cars, and life in Austin. As he prepares for the upcoming 12th FINA World Championships in Melbourne, Ian talks about his training, his goals, the World Record, and the Beijing Summer Games.

The Speedo Make Waves series, which began with podcasts featuring Phelps, Amanda Beard and Natalie Coughlin, has included reports from both the European Championships in Budapest and the Pan Pacific Championships in Victoria. Recent video podcasts featured Australian superstar Grant Hackett, a first look at the new FS-PRO speed suit, and a behind-the-scenes look at the star-studded red carpet premiere of the new film, Pride.

The entire series of podcasts are available at and can also be downloaded and subscribed to from iTunes.
