The WCNC NBC affiliate in Charlotte (local Charlotte media loves swimming) decided to pit David, who doesn’t coach his daughter, against Alyssa in a 25 fly just to see who might win. David himself was an All-American backstroker at Auburn.

Using her more modern start (as compared to her dad’s old-fashioned, two-footed touch start), Alyssa got off to a sizable lead and won by half-a-stroke. Check out the video below.
