Liam Tancock prepares for Shanghai with ballet lessons


Great column here on by Liam Tancock, where he reveals that he has been taking ballet lessons, and that British swimming training camps involve a FIFA tournament on PlayStation.

This might come as a surprise but I’ve been taking ballet classes with my training group.

I’ve had four – and it’s not like we’re wearing frilly tutus or trying to be dancers and perfect the moves. It’s about thinking outside of the box, trying to keep ahead of our rivals by learning from other disciplines.

– Oh no it doesn’t, and oh yes you were … and I hope that someone’s got the pictures to proove it ! ;-)
