Alex Walsh Delves Into Defining Moments From Olympics Trials, Tokyo Games

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman HodgesGarrett McCaffrey, and Gold Medal Mel Stewart, SwimSwam welcomes both the biggest names in swimming that you already know, and rising stars that you need to get to know, as we break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

We sat down with Alex Walsh, the NCAA champion who added ‘Olympic Medalist’ to her resume this summer. She talks us through her experience at both the Olympic Trials and Olympic Games, noting that at both meets before semi-finals she was in a less-than-ideal headspace. She walks us through her process of turning things around mentally and how she grew from both experiences.

Too bad Walsh along w Margalis and Cox had to choose between 2free and 2IM.
Wonder if USA would’ve been able to get a little closer to China if everyone had their hat in the ring.

Nah. Don’t think Walsh or Cox would have been 1:55. The only one who could have would have been Margalis

and that worked out so well for her. Including 100 and 50 free later in meet.

I firmly believe Huske cost herself a spot on the 4×1 by racing 6 200s in the middle of the meet in events that she didn’t have a great shot in.

oxyswim – I agree with you but it was only 5 200’s. She didn’t make finals of 200 free. However it may have also cost her and the US a silver medal in Tokyo as they didn’t have confidence or a reason to use her on 4×100

I am shocked that bench press is still in an elite school’s swimming dryland program.

OK maybe not shocked but like, I would assume that’d be sorta on the outs these days.
