The Arizona Republic and USA Today, which owns the Republic, have obtained and published the full text message chain between coach Bob Bowman and Olympian Caroline Burckle, messages that have drawn harsh criticism of Bowman and prompted an apology from the 2016 Olympic coach.
Jordan Wilimovsky won the 1-mile and 10k races at this year’s Flowers Sea Swim, an open water event held in Cayman Islands. But the 2015 world champion wasn’t the only big name among the almost 800 swimmers competing at the event.
Clark Burckle graduated from St. Xavier High School in 2006 and was a member of St. Xavier Tigers Sharks high school swim team.
