In this latest episode of the ‘…In Conversation With’ series on The Millfield Way Podcast, meet Millfield’s seasoned Director of Swimming, former Millfield student and Olympian, Euan Dale.
After joining Millfield from a small rural town in Scotland at 11 years old in 1997 with dyslexia, Euan thrived at Millfield and went on to study Accounting and Finance at Loughborough University, while also swimming full time. Euan is one of Millfield’s Olympians, after competing at the 2008 Olympic Games. He joined Millfield as an Assistant Coach in 2010, where he now gives those same opportunities to current swimmers at Millfield as Director of Swimming.
The Millfield Swimming programme is designed for students from every year level of the school, and is recognised as one of the top clubs in Great Britain. The programme has six full time coaches and is equipped with the most impressive training facilities of any school in the country, with a 50m Olympic pool built to FINA/AASA standards.
Millfield participates in a host of local, regional and national swimming competitions. We continually produce international, national and regional champions year on year. Along the way, swimmers learn lifelong skills such as effective time management, dedication and goal setting – all of which transfer to successful adult life.
Millfield has produced 24 Olympians in its short history and has had a swimmer at every Olympic Games since 1968 including champions like Duncan Goodhew, Mark Foster and most recently, James Guy.
