SwimSwam Podcast: Jimmy Feigen Had NO Intention of Swimming at Texas

On 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.

Jimmy wanted out of the state of Texas and was looking at Arizona and Southern California as his top choices. However, when his parents made him take a trip to UT, fate got in the way of his plans to get out of the Lone Star State.
