Swimming Australia president John Bertrand said the sport needed to better capitalise on the experience and knowledge within its own ranks.

Bertrand said Hackett and O’Neill were keen to get involved and he hoped to take five-time Olympic champion Thorpe up on his public offer last year to mentor the Australian team and help junior development in the sport.

Hackett will join the Australian team for the Aquatic Super Series in Perth later this week.

“We had Grant Hackett, Susie O’Neill very excited to be involved,” Bertrand said.
