London Olympic silver medallist Christian Sprenger has called for former champion Grant Hackett to return to the Australian swim team as a mentor, to help fill the leadership gap and develop a new team captain. […]

”I have a lot of respect for [Hackett] and so did the team members back then,” said Sprenger.

”To be honest, I can’t really see another Grant Hackett as yet, unfortunately, but I think we can make the right changes and the right moves as a group.

”It might not even be a bad idea to have Grant Hackett come back to have a bit of a mentor role.
