On SwimSwam Podcast, we’re giving you an in-depth listen at all things swimming. Host Coleman Hodges welcomes guests and guest co-hosts alike to get perspective on our ever-changing swimming universe and break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.
We sat down with world-record holder Aaron Peirsol, who is currently quarantining in Virginia. We spoke with Aaron about the past, present, and future of swimming, in terms of the sport itself as well as swimming as a business. Peirsol shared his experience of being a professional during the “super suit” era, and his thoughts on what they brought to the sport both in and out of the pool.
