Interviewee: John Locco, Founder of the Brighton Icebergers
Venue: At home, Brighton, Melbourne
We met up with John Locco in his home in Brighton that is a part shrine to his involvement in a variety of sports, with open water swimming and boxing at the centre.
John is perhaps most well known for founding the Brighton Icebergers, but he has also enjoyed a successful sporting career as an athlete and manager, and even became the Mayor of Brighton for a period in the early nineties!
We talked about the founding of the Icebergers, the history of the club and what led him to become the driving force behind the saving of the iconic Brighton Baths.
In this snippet from the full podcast interview, we talk about how the famous Melbourne Brighton Icebergers open water swimming club came to be.
The full interview with John Locco will feature on a new podcast episode coming soon…
