Ukrainian swimmer Andriy Govorov is the owner of one of 7 new World Records broken so far in 2018, and this week, is competing at the 2018 FINA World Cup Series stop in Doha, Qatar. In what has turned out to be a very-small field, Govorov and American swimmer Michael Andrew, who always show up, did an interview together where, among other things, Govorov discussed his World Record and ‘what was it like’ to break a World Record.
Govorov, who says he doesn’t actually train that much butterfly, explained his 4 stages of preparation:
Govorov also shares that his first sport was hockey, largely because his dad was a hockey player, and that it was where he focused most of his energy as a kid in Russia; that if he weren’t a swimmer, he’d be an engineer; that he speaks 4 languages; and the ‘why’ behind his training and competing.
