With a 2nd place finish in the 200 free to Katie Ledecky, and 2 big wins in the 100 and 200 backstroke, going a 2:07.24 in the ladder which is good for 3rd in the world currently, I’d say both Missy and Todd are definitely headed in the right direction.

Todd discussed how Missy’s perspective on the sport and her own races have changed, gaining both racing and life experience through the world cup, and even shared his favorite story about Missy from the 2012 London Olympics.
