NCAA All-American Frank Dyer To Train With Bob Bowman At NBAC

NCAA All-American Frank Dyer will be heading to Baltimore to begin training with Bob Bowman and the NBAC crew. The mid-distance freestyler from the University of Notre Dame has had a strong NCAA career and hopes to continue swimming through the 2016 Olympics in Rio. An olympic trials qualifyer in 2012, Dyer plans to continue swimming for at least two years through Olympic Trials in 2016.

“I think the best thing for me about Olympic Trials in 2012 was how amazing an experience it was to just have been there but how more rewarding it would be to return in four years with serious goals of making the Olympic team. I’ve had my sights set on swimming after college ever since that meet and when Scott Weltz won the 200 meter breast, he said, “Why not me?” So that’s been a big inspiration of mine moving forward, that anyone has a chance if you have a lane.”

Frank said his goals are unclear at the moment, but he knows he still has a lot to prove as he continues his career. The training group in Baltimore speaks for itself, with some of the best freestylers not only in the country, but from around the world.
“I’m not a National Champion or even on the National team for that matter but I’m really looking forward to the training at NBAC and improving there. When I spoke to Bob for the first time I told him that all I wanted to do was keep competing and then we would see where it goes from there.”
Frank told us that he is very excited for the change of pace with his training. Recently retired Notre Dame head coach, Tim Welsh, helped “coach” Frank with what to say before he spoke to Coach Bowman. He said that he had already made up his mind that North Baltimore was the place he wanted to be and that he was thrilled when Coach Bowman told him that he could join his group. He knows he has a big challenge ahead of him, but is excited to see what the future holds.

“We are very excited to have Frank join our program.  He is a proven performer at the NCAA level as well as a tremendous team leader.  Frank is a great fit for our team mindset and shares our passion to perform at the highest levels.” – Bob Bowman

Dyer, Dwyer, Agnel, McLean, Duvall (Navy), Kalisz (Georgia), Luchsinger, Ous and Phelps will create a very professional environment for Phelps to enjoy and focus on 100 fly and making both free relays?

Seriously, now that MP is back and probably wants to be in his second career a full-time sprinter, I would like to see one or two world-class sprinters going to NBAC to train with him. Like Ryan Lochte at SwimMAC.

Is there still enough space in the NBAC pool for all these swimmers? :mrgreen:
