We hear about the influence of data and science in sports every day. You can’t watch an NFL game without hearing “the analytics say this is the right decision.” So it should come as no surprise that the world’s best swimmers work with experts to find speed anywhere possible. Enter Nick Smith and the field of “movement science.”

He’s worked with Cam McEvoy in his ascent to the top of the sprinting world, as well as other Aussie swim stars like Ariarne Titmus and Shayna Jack to name a couple, with the objective of understanding how the body moves through water, where in the race there is room to improve, and helping craft that improvement. Nick Smith is an expert and is part of why Cam McEvoy told us in Episode #150 about his target time to 15m being a huge priority and how he was able to achieve it en route to his World Championship title in the 50m Freestyle.

Check this one out to learn how Nicholas Smith, Queensland Academy of Sport and Team Australia are leveraging science to achieve results in the pool. Enjoy!
