The 2004 Athens champion wasn’t too big to offer some free advice to budding swimmers, however.

Ryan, now retired from the sport but active as an employee of the YMCA – the new caretaker of the Aquatic Centre – came to town to head discussions about the direction of coaching at the facility.

Ryan, famous for her long and colourful fingernails and crucial leg in the Australian women’s 4×100 metre freestyle relay triumph of 2004, is a swimming coach at a YMCA run facility and lives in the Sydney suburb of Menangle.

Prior to Monday night’s meeting, Ryan popped poolside to ponder the techniques of budding swimmers and offer some priceless advice for free.

Among those to benefit were Riley Nelson, Madeline Charles and Luke Howard, all of whom halted their training to take note.

The swimmers learnt of some new techniques and training methods and quizzed the three time Olympian about her career.

Another to benefit from the visit was Aquatic Centre coach and lifeguard, Amie Friend.
