Thank you for stopping by.  My name is Sergio Lopez Miro and I have been involved in the swimming world as a swimmer or as a coach for almost 40 years.  Swimming has given me a path in life and my goal is to share some of my thoughts and experiences here with you.  Let me know what you think and enjoy!

Great two pairs!

Great to see our ex Bolles swimmers here at the Games. Even though once a Bolles always a Bolles ;-)

The past with a bright future and the present with a bright future. Go BOLLES!!!


Moving into the Dorms :-(

These first four days we have been staying at the Holiday Inn right here in Gilford next to the University. Today we have moved to the University dorms :-(

The dorms and the area are nice but there are a couple not so good things:

* No more desserts.
* No more TV.

Like I always tell my swimmers "find the positive of the negative." So maybe these not so good things become good things like:

* No more dessert, No More Extra Pounds :-)
* No more TV, more time to catch up with lost hours of sleep :-) and more time to do club/high school work :-(.

Well joking aside this will be a good opportunity so I spend more quality time with Joseph and the other members of Team Singapore. As coaches we are always looking to keep making the relationships with the swimmers stronger, and now we have the perfect opportunity to make our partnership stronger.

No excuses to fall asleep standing up on deck anymore :-) No that I ever did that.

In the picture Joseph and Aloysius at the local supermarket buying extra groceries for the dorm.

Very happy with the way Joseph swam st practice today. Still twenty one more before he swims but looking pretty good. We will keep taking one day at a time.

Today the nutritionist and the massage therapist for team Singapore arrived to Surrey to take care of the team.

Just wanted to share this picture of Joseph while doing the Roger exercises and give some PR to our team sponsor ;-)

Now ready for a good dinner and hopefully a good night if sleep.


Singapore Lane

It is hard to get used to it. To be coaching just one swimmer that has his own lane. No complains ;-) soon the rest of the Singapore Olympic Team will be here to join us at the training camp.

I am also excited since the Spanish Olympic Team will be training here too and I will get to see some of my friends. Also my old coach Jordi Murio will be here with I believe two of his swimmers. Exciting he was my coach for the 1988 Olympics and now we are both coaches ;-) at the Olympics twenty four years later.

Well enjoy Joseph's pic and hope everyone starts the day great back home.


First Practice at our Camp Base

For the next couple of weeks we will be training at Surrey Sports Park located at the University of Surrey right outside of London.

Beautiful pool. Exciting!
