I believe that inspirational coaches come in many forms. Each swimmer becomes molded by bits and pieces of each coach. What works for one may not work for all. Sometimes coaches don't become an inspiration until they are looked back on.

well, i think there are a few out there, i have been swimmin for 7 years and have only had 2 which i like. On occation my current one will be positive but not usually. lot of the time they can be a bit of a jerk ( all coaches have thier jerky times), but they do make you swim faster. and sometimes are nice. (moreso outside the pool)
