We are joined on Broken Oars Podcast by Xeno Muller.
Olympic Single Sculls Champion at Atlanta in 1996 in one of the all-time great Olympic finals and finishes, Xeno was also an Olympic Silver Medallist in 2000 and a multiple medallist at rowing's world championships in the single sculls discipline.
Xeno has gone on to be one of the world's most successful high-performance coaches, working on a one-to-one basis with individual rowers to help them fulfil their goals and ambitions through his www.elite-rowing-coach.com platform.
In this fascinating and inspiring conversation, Xeno touches on the ways that modern coaching can coach the passion and joy out of rowers, qualities which he sees, rightly, as being intrinsic to life and going fast.
Talking about keeping the passion and joy by staying curious and being open to learning, Xeno identifies the value of simplicity, of everything in rowing and life flowing from getting the fundamentals right; the vital importance of breathing; how what your bows are doing tell you what you are doing; and why Mahon, Spracklen et al had it right in the first place.
And why you should use the mirror in your erg room - every single stroke.
This is one of the most important and inspiring conversations we've ever had with one of the true originals, deep-thinkers and passionately engaged people we've ever met - in or out of rowing.
Bow Four? This is one to take notes from.
