Jack Burnell

At just 19, Jack Rex Burnell is an incredibly talented open water swimmer and Olympic speaker who sees the value of bringing what he learns in sport into the world of business. He is also studying for a business management degree and regularly brings what he learns there into the world of sport.

This means that Jack can combine everything he knows about commitment, discipline and hard work and share his knowledge with audiences at events and conferences who warmly welcome his insight and charming delivery.

Jack is also very strong on teamwork and, based out of the intensive training centre in Loughborough, he has worked with some of the best swimmers in the UK as well as some of the most talented physios, sports scientists and nutritionists.

With his slogan of ‘If you have a lane, you have a chance, anything can happen!’ the motivational speaker lists among his key achievements in the pool as coming fourth at the European juniors in Helsinki (1500m), fourth at the European juniors open water in Holland (5,000), second at the USA Open Championships (800m), being ranked second in Great Britain (1500m) and ranked first for his age in the 1500m and open water.
