Tony Carroll

The writer formerly known as “Troy Gennaro”, better known as Tony Carroll, has been working with SwimSwam since April of 2013. Tony grew up in northern Indiana and started swimming in 2003 when his dad forced him to join the local swim team. Reluctantly, he joined on the condition that he wouldn’t have to wear a “speedo, ” only to find out that he would end up loving the sport. He continued swimming through high school, and eventually went on to swim collegiately for IUPUI. He was given the pseudonym “Troy Gennaro” to avoid complications with the NCAA’s compliance rules.

Tony’s swimming career ended in 2015 after his senior year of college. He graduated from IUPUI as a school record holder and was the first male swimmer in program history to qualify for the US National Championships. He now stays involve with the sport as a coach in Louisville, KY and as a SwimSwam contributor.
