Nathan Adrian, 4-time Olympic medalist, is making the pro swim life work for him. Since his stunning win over James Magnussen (Swimming Australia) in the 100 freestyle at the 2012 London Olympic Games, Adrian has been in high demand for appearances and corporate partnerships. Repped by the same sports management company (Octagon) that reps Michael Phelps, Adrian’s travel schedule has been brutal. He’s on the road 3 out of 4 weekends. Fortunately for him, he has graduated from UC Berkeley and has the time to train, recover and fulfil his demanding schedule. Adrian’s not concerned about early 2013 swims, though he put down a 48.3 at the Austin Grand Prix in the 100 free breaking a 20+ year pool record held by Matt Biondi.
ADRIAN: “Right now is just rehearsal for World Championships later this summer, and whoever gets their hand on the wall first will be World Champion.”
