Sponsored by Dolfin Swimwear, visit the Swimming World Magazine Vault to read more.

Swimming World continues a series in which top coaches share some of the secrets of their success. The June issue of Swimming World Magazine highlights the many accomplishments of Coach Don Talbot.

Talbot began his love for swimming as an age grouper growing up in Australia, before continuing on to become a coach, motivator, technician, and author of Swimming to Win For All Ages. Coaching proved to be a successful venture for Talbot as he came trained World Record holders, Olympians, and Commonwealth champions.

Some of Talbot’s most well-known athletes include John and Ilsa KonradsIan O’Brien, Bob Windle, Kevin Berry, and Tracy Caulkins.

Talbot didn’t limit his coaching to Australia, however, spending time in Canada and the USA. While in Canada he was named executive director of Canadian Swimming and won Canadian Coach of the Year twice. Oft decorated, Talbot was inducted into the International Swim- ming Hall of Fame in 1979 and was made Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1981 and Officer of the Order of Australia in 2007. In 1990 he was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame, received an Australian Sports Medal in 2000 and a Centenary Medal in 2001.
