Ingrid Wilm Discusses Leveling-Up to Become ISL Backstroke Juggernaut

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman HodgesGarrett McCaffrey, and Gold Medal Mel Stewart, SwimSwam welcomes both the biggest names in swimming that you already know, and rising stars that you need to get to know, as we break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

She also describes her experience at the 2021 Olympic Trials and how she has come out of a 3rd place finish better than ever.
