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.
Melvin Stewart is a man of many names. 3-time Olympic Medalist. 2-time Olympian. Ambassador of the USA Swimming Foundation. Professional Hollywood Screenwriter. ESPN Analyst and Host. Perhaps most well known (and fondly referred to in the swimming community) as Gold Medal Mel. He’s traveled the world, he’s has success at every level, he’s made a name for himself in numerous circles. But to us at Swimswam, he is Co-Founder and CEO.
Everyone who’s a swim fan knows Rowdy Gaines. He has become the voice of swimming to this generation, sitting in the coveted NBC announcer chair at every major swim meet, national or international, for the last 15+ years. I asked Mel 1) why wasn’t he announcing swimming? and 2) Who will be… the next Rowdy?
