Coleman’s Carpool: Chase Kalisz and Olivia Smoliga Play Would You Rather

In Coleman’s Carpool we get the insider’s perspective on your favorite swimmers. SwimSwam Head of Production, Coleman Hodges, invites swimmers to take a ride with him and talk about anything…except swimming. Mostly.

Taking a trip down to Athens to visit the University of Georgia between conference and NCAA’s, SwimSwam got in the car with 2016 Olympic medalists Chase Kalisz and Olivia Smoliga, as well as “Purebred” Bulldog, Floyd. Right from the start, you can tell that Chase and Olivia spend a lot of time together in and out of the pool, because I don’t think 2 minutes passed that one wasn’t giving the other grief. They were very fun to be around, and I had a lot of laughs at one or the others expense.

We played would you rather, and covered topics such as fins vs paddles, who’s a better cook, and sweats or swim suit to prom (Chase didn’t even get to go to prom. He was in Colorado Springs.)
