Michael Andrew posted another installment in his latest string of video blogs on Wednesday, this time taking viewers on a tour of Adidas‘ archives and giving us an inside look into his backyard training facility.
In the archives, Michael and his sister Michaela learn the history of Adidas‘ signature “three stripes,” viewing items including a pair of Muhammed Ali‘s shoes from 1968, Team Germany’s 1972 Olympics uniform, and one of Ian Thorpe‘s bodysuits. The video concludes with a Q&A session, featuring an introduction video that Michael himself also made, with an up-close look at his private pool in the backyard of his family’s Lawrence, Kansas, home.
Watch the Q&A (beginning at 3:56) to hear him talk about the process and mentality behind turning pro.
Adidas is a SwimSwam partner.
