4 strokes on first length, and then 6 on the rest, for a 200 breaststroke! Great stroke count. How does she do it? Her Notre Dame Coach, Brian Barnes talk about what they do in the weight room (how much can she squat), and in the water, to prepare.
After swimming at conference meet, where she first broke the American Record going 2:04.34 a, she described not knowing she broke it until a few minutes after the race. At NCAA’s she broke it again, going 2:04.06.
She is the first person in Notre Dame history to win a national title.
This summer, she is going to swim at SwimMAC with other “big dogs”. “I guess I am a big dog now too!”
Goal: Pan Pacific Games this summer. Good luck to you, Emma.
