"Legendary Australian swimming coach and the country's oldest Olympian, Forbes Carlile, has died aged 95. Carlile first coached the Australian swimming team at the London Olympics in 1948, before competing in the modern pentathlon himself in Helsinki in 1952. In doing so, he became the only Australian to first coach at and then compete in the Olympics. In his later coaching career, Carlile played a key role in producing a number of notable Australian swimmers, including Shane Gould, Karen Moras and Terry Gathercole.", www.sbs.com.au
