Maggie Steffens on Making History in Tokyo, Added Significance of Games

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.

We sat down with Maggie Steffens, the woman who not only won her 3rd Olympic title in a row in women’s water polo, but did it while breaking the record for most goals scored during Olympic play in history. Steffens discusses the ups and downs of training for a delayed Olympics and dealing with the pressure of an extra Olympic year once the team was finally in Tokyo.

Water polo is an endurance sport with a lot of short, explosive movements, so consistent energy is key for Maggie. In preparing for and while at the Olympics, she turned to UCAN natural energy products which are designed to optimize performance for athletes without causing a spike and crash in blood sugar.
