Mel Marshall

Mel Marshall recently took over the National Lead Coach role in Loughborough and her swimmers include grand slam winning swimmer Adam Peaty.

Marshall has overseen Adam Peaty's rise to the top of the international swimming stage, coaching him to success at both the Olympic Games in Rio, the European Championships in early 2016 and three world titles at Kazan 2015.

Before moving to Loughborough Marshall was the head coach at the City of Derby Swimming club and was named as an elite coach by UK Sport in 2016. She was also part of the coaching team that led Team England to one of its more most successful performances at Commonwealth Games in 2014 for over 20 years.

Before turning her hand to coaching, Mel had a successful career as a swimmer herself which included winning six medals at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Australia and Bronze at the World Short Course Championships in 2008. She retired from professional swimming in 2008.
