Henry McFadden on Making Worlds Team: “I learned how to destroy practice every day”

After making the world champs team as a high schooler, Jersey Wahoo Henry McFadden came back stateside to Irvine to compete at Jr Nationals. McFadden told SwimSwam that a big motivator for him coming to race in Irvine was to swim on his team’s relays, where they had 3 other male qualifiers for the meet.

He also describes his experience with Team USA at their training camp in Singapore, revealing a set of 20×50 that he did very well on.
