Scott Talbot, one of Swimming New Zealand's three high
performance coaches, is to take up a new role in Australia.
Talbot will begin a new position created by New South Wales
Institute of Swimming and Sydney University starting in
Swimming New Zealand acting chief executive Mark O'Connor
said he was disappointed to lose Talbot but wished him well.
"Scott was a fine Olympian in the pool for New Zealand and
moved immediately into coaching and ultimately into Swimming
New Zealand's High Performance Centre," said O'Connor.
"Scott is young for an international coach and the
opportunity to develop his skillset with an overseas role
will no doubt benefit his growth as a swim coach."
Talbot, a former national backstroke record-holder, was an
Olympian at Athens and Sydney.
