Australia getting ‘soft’ says coach Ken Wood

Australian swim coach Ken Wood has tough love for his compatriots in the Olympics this year: “We’re getting too soft. Our work ethic has dropped down.” Having helped train China’s double gold winner Ye Shiwen, he says the Australians “cannot afford to be soft” to compete with Chinese swimmers, and questions the work ethic of Aussie athletes, saying those in London seemed to be more interested in socializing. “They’re running their mobile phones, Twittering and Facebook and everything else,” Wood said. “It was more of a carnival atmosphere.” Read CNN
