Shock, European coaches busted for spying on Magnussen


Australian media is alive with the news that James Magnussen’s coach Brant Best recently caught two men secretly timing and recording details of their training session, taking split times and everything (!).

“There have been people sitting in the grandstands. A couple came in the other week and were looking and timing.”

Oh the horror, for as we have learned in October, Magnussen skipped the World Cup circuit and everything, choosing rather to train in secret and race in some small time, local events, to keep his rivals guessing.

Read for instance The Telegraph and Herald Sun.
