Always exciting to see the young swimming talent out there and the true passion and dedication from their coach. Makes me want to push myself harder to be a better coach. Awesome interview and a true testament to the spirit of the sport.

Great interview. Especially like his comments about why Katie swam at Junior Nationals rather than Senior Nationals last year.

Best of luck to Katie in Omaha & beyond.

It’s a great interview with a smart coach.
