Swim­ming Aus­tralia have ap­pointed Olympic gold medal­list Alex Bau­mann in the new role of high per­for­mance chief strate­gist. The for­mer world record holder and Cana­dian cham­pion was re­cruited to over­see the Olympic, Par­a­lympic and open wa­ter pro­grams from Jan­uary 31. It adds to SA’s post-Rio over­haul which in­cludes de­lay­ing 2018 Gold Coast Com­mon­wealth Games tri­als un­til a month be­fore the event. Bau­mann was New Zealand’s High Per­for­mance Sport CEO from 2012 un­til June be­fore step­ping down to be closer to his Gold Coast-based chil­dren, Cana­dian na­tional swim squad mem­bers Ash­ton and Tabitha.
