VIDEO: Florida assistant Martyn Wilby addresses media at All Sports press conference

The Florida Gators hosted their All Sports Press Conference on Monday, with media getting a chance to hear from associate head coach Martyn Wilby.

Fans are used to getting these press conferences from head coach Gregg Troy, who does one nearly weekly, but it’s unique to get a second opinion this time around from Wilby’s perspective.

Wilby talks about the team’s season-opening dual meet with Arkansas and highlights some influential athletes on the Gators squad. Wilby is also asked about the possibility of American swimming switching over to the metric system, which prompts an entertaining response from the former British National Teamer.
