The sharp improvement in all strokes is due to the excellent quality training she receives at the London Aquatic Centre Performance Program’s coach Alexander McDonald, and the club, which employs top support staff with backing of the University of East London. That the club also trains in the best pool in the UK, is an extra bonus.
Madison trains 5 times per week in the 50m London Aquatic Centre Olympic quality pool and once a week in the LAC 25m training pool.
