SSPC: Cody Miller Details Reasons for Having His Best Training Since Before Rio

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman Hodges 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 Olympic champion and swim-vlogger Cody Miller after the breaststroke had a strong showing at the Pro Swim in San Antonio. My favorite part about Cody is his vulnerability; his honesty. We get into the nitty-gritty of being a new father, training through a pandemic, and being someone people look to for hope and excitement in a time of uncertainty. Cody shares that through these ups and downs of the last year, he’s gained perspective and is now training the best he has in years.

Awesome interview! Cody’s the best and he’s a beacon of light to everyone he comes into contact with. I’m uplifted every time I’m around him or see him interviewed or I watch one of his vlogs. Cody, along with Lilly King , Blake Peroni, GOAT Coach Ray Looze, and many others, have truly made Bloomington, Indiana and Indiana University the place to be if you want to go fast, have fun and achieve success beyond your wildest dreams!

Not enough to beat Adam “the train” Peaty, Anton Chupkov, Sato, Kamminga and many others …..

What odds are you offering? Colour me interested in this bet.

Literally no one can beat peaty over 100 LCM so that’s not a particularly fair comparison to make towards any 100 breast swimmer in the world. The 200 breast in the US is lacking at the moment, no doubt about that

One thing (of many things) I like about Cody is that, even though he trains with the Pro group at Indiana, he still officially represents his old club team in Nevada. Does any other pro do this?

Cody is very humble man and never forgot where he came from. I also know that Ray gives his athletes the choice. There are many coaches out there, past and present, that don’t and they’re jerks about it. I won’t name names, but many experienced club coaches know full well who they are. When I was coaching club full time, I didn’t make it a big deal but always appreciated it when the college coach gave the swimmer the option, but I generally told the swimmer to represent the University if they had relays they could swim with them.

There’s a lot I don’t know about post-grad professional swimming, (aside: this would make a great Swim Swam article), but are the post-grads allowed to swim on the same relay as NCAA scholarship athletes? From a USA Swimming perspective, aren’t the NCAA teams always a different entity than the group the pros are in?

Townley Haas represented his club team, NOVA, at the latest PSS stop. I don’t know if he regularly does that, but it was nice to see.

Except during the 2016 run-up, when BADGER lined his pockets, and he represented them vs SAND. 😉

I love Cody Miller as a person and enjoy his vlogs, but a large part of me does not want him to make the Olympic team unless he has cleaned up his pullout to be undoubtedly legal. Even each of his breaststroke kicks has a very questionable dolphin motion at the end (which I doubt he’d ever get called for, but it is certainly pushing the rules). Having him on even a prelims relay is a risk. In Rio, I thought they should’ve used Prenot on that medley relay final.

Don’t worry. Michael Andrew and Nic Fink will make the team, not him.

Andrew and Wilson in the 100, Licon and Fink in the 200.
