SSPC: Mariah Denigan Led a Whole OW Field Off Course… and Still Won Bronze

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.

Denigan shared the story of how she won a bronze medal at the 2018 World Jr Championships even though she led the entire field, minus the last 3 swimmers in the race, off course.
