After making 3 consecutive 50m free Olympic finals, in Japan he finally won the medal that had eluded him for so long. Ash Tulloch had a revealing chat with Bruno about his journey in and outside the pool. They discuss everything from putting on 10 kg after the Tokyo Games, his wife and coach, fellow Olympian Michelle Lenhardt, plus Formula 1 icon Ayrton Senna and the mission on the horizon - Paris 2024.
