We are all trying to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic as best we can. Staying at home and not socializing is not an easy task for anyone, and keeping a swimmer out of the pool is equally antagonizing. Therefore, SwimSwam is starting the Swimming From Home Talk Show, where host Coleman Hodges speaks with the swimming community about how they’re coping with our current goggle-less reality.
Talking to sprinter star Bruno Fratus is always a treat. Though you may be more familiar with his later work, winning back-to-back silver medals in the 50 free at the 2017 and 2019 world championships, Fratus has been in the swimming game for a long time. He talked about when he first started as a pro in Brazil, at age 17, in 2006, and his journey from there to eventually make his way to the US and end up in Coral Springs where he trains now.
