Episode 16: Athlete Feature - John Van Wisse, ultra-endurance triathlete and swimmer

The Perform Prevent Recover Podcast

In episode 16 we get to chat to John Van Wisse - utra distance marathon swimmer and triathlete from our own bayside area of Melbourne. Over a 25 year career, John has won numerous international events, and set world records in gruelling ultra distance events, including the English Channel swim and the gruelling Arch to Arc triathlon from London to France. John takes us through the complexities of the Channel swims, talks about the time he almost died, and details the incredible difficulty of each leg of the Arch to Arc. John has amazing experience in many of the world's most famous triathlon and swimming events, and still has unfinished business with the Arch to Arc! He combines his current triathlon training with his swim coaching in Melbourne, overseeing hundreds of swimmers with their own fitness challenges, yet still manages to find the time to train to the level needed not only to complete these events, but to break world records. Listen in to one of the great ultra endurance athletes of our time!

John Van Wisse: Superhuman #7 - The Unlaced Podcast with Jake Barker-Daish

The Unlaced Podcast with Jake Barker-Daish

John Van Wisse is one of Australia’s greatest ever triathletes, with an incredible CV of achievements to name a couple: World Record Holder for the Enduroman Arch to Arch event(run, bike and swim from London to Paris), the fastest Australian to swim the English Channel, a winner of the New Zealand Half Ironman and has won the New York - Manhattan Island Marathon 3x. The lengths to which John Van Wisse has taken his body over the last 25 years is inhumane, something I was really interested in talking to him about was his mentality to challenge, hardship and further understand what is his why to drive him so far. People may know David Goggins, but believe me you need to know John Van Wisse and his inspiring outlook on life.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

S2E10 - John Van Wisse

Left Right Out

One of the craziest athletes on the planet jumps on the line ahead of another epic quest and proceeds to blow the minds of the crew.  Is the Hayne Plane out of control? Is this the best AFL retiring class ever? And cheese boards at the footy...we're on board for sure. The big and not so big issues all in a tight little pace of 'podiness'  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
