Anders, nice job injecting swimming into your mainstream show. I’m a fan. What do you think about taking it even further after the Olympics? Season 1’s “Muscle I’d Like to Flex” is a “Workaholics” classic and could be a good blueprint for what to go for: take Adam’s delusional narcissism into the sport swimming. Can you imagine Adam standing next to Grevers? This would be a good way to get some elite swimmers onto mainstream tv as well. Good luck!

Moar of this, plz.

I was so geared up when I saw the thread title, I was thinking Ahhh the Swedish swimming great from the 80s and 90s, Anders Holmertz! He was checking out the US trials, glad to see he’s still into the sport. Instead, it took a few seconds for it to click that no, this was about a some Cheesehead ex college swimmer gone to Hollywood. My hopes were dashed. (I’m kidding by the way … sort of).
