Dear Katrina,

What challenges have Olympians faced in training?

I interviewed Nelson Diebel, Olympic Gold Medalist, who shares one time he got into trouble, and how he overcame the challenge, with Coach Chris Martin, while at Peddie.

Coming soon – two more hilarious stories from Nelson Diebel.

the first time i heard this story was at the virginia swimming all star banquet in like 1994 when i was about 11 and nelson was the man. he gave probably the only speech that i remember hearing my life. he spoke well and was really open and honest with the crowd there at the holiday inn or whatever it was. made me wanna be a breastroker. thanks nelson.
