Ian Armiger - Technical & Programme Advisor
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Ian Armiger as Technical & Programme Advisor from September. Ian, who has enjoyed a successful coaching career spanning 40 years, was Director of Swimming at Loughborough University and a GB Olympic Coach, placing swimmers at six Olympics with swimmers making Olympic Finals at three of these. Ian was awarded the prestigious Mussabini Medal for services to Coaching in 2007, a Loughborough University Medal for outstanding service in 2012, and was inducted into the British Swimming Coaches Hall of Fame in 2013. Ian has held numerous positions both Internationally and within the UK. Ian remains an active Coach and is a Mentor/Advisor to various organisations including the West Midlands Talent Coach Development Scheme.

I was privileged to work under Ian’s tutelage on the Loughborough Fast Swimming programme, and have seen first-hand the immediate performance benefits swimmers enjoy from Ian’s programme and coaching techniques. He is an outstanding coach & mentor and his experiences as an Olympic GB and International Coach will be invaluable to the club and coaching team as we look to build the framework which will allow our swimmers to push on to greater achievements.
