Nerding Out: 200 IM Update Headed Into Finals


Nobody really knows how to pronounce Nate Tschohl’s last name…surname, if you will.  That never seemed to matter on deck, though, where he was always known simply as “Coach Nate”.
Prior to becoming an insurance agent and consultant, Nate could be found on deck at Old Dominion University where he was the Assistant Coach from 2006-2010.  Or, on deck somewhere else as the Head Senior Coach for Tidewater Aquatic Club (TAC).
He now spends his time protecting the small business owners of America by managing all their risk management needs.  When not preserving the American Dream, Nate can be found walking the shores of the Chesapeake Bay with his lovely fiance, Carly, and their two dogs, Tim & Fran.
The Swim Nerds are back with their last-minute breakdown of what we’ve seen so far in the first two rounds of Phelps vs. Lochte in London. The pick still seems to go to Lochte, but there are some interesting notes and observations below.

Braden, you’re awesome and brilliant, but my less scientific analysis lead me to choose Phelps over Lochte, and I was right for a change! I’m sure you’re that Phelps won like so many others here!

All this makes me think of is what my coach says over and over and over again.. “Paper doesn’t swim.”
