In episode 111 of The Physical Performance Show Brad Beer has a conversation with Andrew Lauterstein - Triple Olympic Medallist.

Andrew (Lauto) Lauterstein is a Triple Olympic Medallist who won three medals at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games. This episode is a great insight into an athlete who dealt with the pressure of expectation and performance very well to claim his three medals. Andrew took silver in the 4x100m medley relay team at Beijing, he also took Bronze in the Australian 4x100m freestyle medley team, but his signature swim of his career was the Bronze medal that he took in the 100m butterfly final in the 2008 Beijing games, he came in behind Michael Phelps and Ian Crocker, the then world record holder.

On today’s episode, Andrew shares around the highs, the lows and the learnings from his remarkable career.  Post swimming Andrew is now the co-director of Engine Swim and also co-owner of New Wave Swim School in Melbourne, Victoria. We do talk about Andrew’s transition out of the swimming pool into his professional life and the early days of Andrew swimming to become a National Champion at just 16 years of age and a great story where Andrew stood on the podium at the Nationals by himself with neither the second or the third-place getter there. Andrew shares around as a Junior why he didn’t set a goal to become an Olympian.

Andrew outlines the Beijing Olympic experience seeing the Chinese cube swimming pool for the first time, the magnificence of that and also the incredibly large dining hall of the Olympic games. Andrew details in a great story about coming up against the mighty Michael Phelps in the 100m butterfly semi-final. Michael went from receiving his Olympic Medal in an event just prior to the 100m semi-final to jump into the pool and setting the world record. Andrew also shares a great story around Michael swimming in the 100m fly and what it’s like to feel his presence in the pool and why Andrew went from being quite cool, calm, collected and excited on the blocks for the 100m butterfly final at Beijing with the 25,000 strong crowd to being petrified and shaking within a moment and why that happened.
