What a delight to have two legends of rowing sit and discuss Mike Spracklen’s history both as an athlete and a coach, his philosophy of coaching as well as sharing a few anecdotes from along the way, including from when Mike coached Martin Cross to his Olympic Gold in 1984.

This interview took place at R4, the 2020 Rowers Conference at Eton Dorney, the 2012 Olympic Rowing Venue. The room was packed with well over 100 delegates each wanting to learn from Mike’s experiences of coaching at the top level in Great Britain, United States, Canada and Russia.
