Swimming Australia has this morning announced that Michael Bohl and Rohan Taylor will take on the role of National Team Coaches for the EnergyAustralia Swim Team through to the 2013 FINA World Championships in Barcelona (July 28 to Aug 4).
Working with new Director of High Performance, Michael Scott, Bohl will be charged with running the women’s team and Taylor the men’s, with the trio set to form a formidable coaching unit in the build-up to Barcelona.
Swimming Australia President Barclay Nettlefold said the appointment of both Bohl and Taylor is another positive step for the sport, on the opening morning of the 2013 EnergyAustralia Swimming Championships in Adelaide.
“Our High Performance Committee put forward the approach of a men’s and women’s team coach to see the team through to this year’s World Championships, and in Michael Bohl and Rohan Taylor we have two very experienced coaches,” said Nettlefold.
“Both men will complement Michael Scott’s skills in the area of high performance and I’ve said all along that our job is to enable athletes and coaches to perform at their best, and that’s what this coaching unit is designed to do.”
“Ultimately we will be looking at appointing a Head Coach post the World Championships in August, and work with Michael once he starts to plan that process. But this is the right combination for 2013 and we’re fortunate to have such experience to draw on.”
