Pose your questions to Speedo's experts

Introducing a series of live forum Q+As taking place in May and June

Posted: 17 June 2011

However long you've been swimming, and whether you're a nervous newbie or Ironman veteran, chances are you'll have questions. How can you improve your technique? What's the recipe for open water racing success? How can you trim down your times?

Well, now you can pose your questions straight to the experts as we welcome Speedo's team of swimming and triathlon experts into the triathletesworld.co.uk forums for a series of themed Q+As over the weeks ahead.

Speedo works with GB swimmers, triathletes and their expert support teams. Some of Speedo's most prestigious swimming and triathlon experts, from Olympic gold medallists to the coaches behind their success, will be on hand to answer your questions on selected Fridays throughout May, June and July.

How will it work?

At 10am on the dates below, we'll set up a forum thread where you can pose your questions. The expert will then join us at 1pm and answer as many questions as possible before the debate closes at 2pm.
