    Cool to see again Todd Schmitz.
    It must be a little hard for him since Missy is in college.
    He used to win so many big races with much pression as a coach.
    Hopefully he will quickly find another young prodigy to train.
    He deserves it.
    Great coach and very interesting to listen in interview.

    In typical Florida fashion the place was buzzing when Lochte showed up on Saturday; and in typical Lochte fashion he and Clary and many (all) others from the US and other National teams signed autographs and took pictures seemingly all session long.

    All the young/inexperienced kids and their coaches are appreciative with not only the act of talking,signing, and smiling — but the selfless vibe that comes with it. One thing is for sure: when these guys swim at Worlds and the Olympics, they have many of the world’s young swimmers pulling for them.
