VIDEO: Gregg Troy Wraps Up Women’s Meet; Looks Ahead to Men’s Meet

Florida head men’s and women’s swimming coach Gregg Troy wraps up his women’s team’s performance at NCAA’s in Minneapolis last week, and then previews his men’s swims for next week. He said he wished they could have finished higher, but he was satisfied with 6 school records. He admits that moving swimmers around to different places, probably referencing in part Elizabeth Beisel in the 200 fly, didn’t work out the way they expected.

On his men, he discusses that the expectation is always the same, implying national titles, but that the expectations some years are “a little more realistic,” which is a great line.

Troy, like most people, is expecting a much tighter battle than the women’s meet, and a much bigger pool of teams fighting for the overall award.

I would criticize Coach Troy’s high intensity/high volume training model, as I don’t think it works for all swimmers. However then Bradley deBorde up and cranks a 18.8 in the 50 yard freestyle. So clearly Coach Troy did right by him. That bodes well for Caeleb Dressel, who should be the future of American sprinting.

He doesn’t train under Troy.

Oh – I thought Troy was the head coach of Florida. Under whom does deBorde train?
