Going into a big year such as 2016, no one may have more insight about an athlete than their coach. In the case of the future USA Women’s Olympic team, to be decided in June, Dave Marsh is the brain to pick, and pick we did.
We caught up with the Head Coach for the Women’s olympic team at the Arena Pro Swim Series stop in Austin a couple weeks ago, and asked for his thoughts on the state of USA Women at this point in the season. Coach Marsh showed extreme enthusiasm in where he saw the leaders and forerunners of team USA as well as the up-and-comers and potential olympic bids.
Coach Marsh also touched on the fact that the next 8-12 weeks (following the Austin APSS) will be the most critical in an athlete’s training and olympic preparation, and that this is the time to buckle down and get serious. Aspiring Olympians, take note. If the head coach of the olympic team says it, you may just want to listen.
