WSC Welcomes Giuseppe Caporaso

We are delighted to welcome Giuseppe Caporaso as our new Head Coach. Giuseppe officially started with the club last week, diving straight into the role with a 05:30 training session and also spending time with the other members of our coaching team over his first few days with the club.

Giuseppe joins us from Newham and University of East London Swimming Club where since 2011 he has led the club to achieve its first National and International successes. From 2008 Giuseppe was Assistant Head Coach at Ealing SC under the mentorship of Dave Heathcock, GB Olympic Coach. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, he provided Sports Science support to the Beacon Programme.

Giuseppe gained his PhD and lectured in Sport Science and Exercise Physiology at the University of Milan, where his Doctoral dissertation was on performance in elite swimmers. He spent two years as a Sport Scientist and Physiological Assessor, working for Italian Olympic Coach, Max Di Mito (Federica Pellegrini's coach at that time).

Giuseppe is excited to be joining us and working alongside our team of swimmers, Coaches and Teachers and we are delighted to have someone of Giuseppe's calibre.
