Why Prenot Loves the Cal Pro Crew: GMM presented by SwimOutlet.com

Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.com

2016 Olympic silver medalist, Josh Prenot, held off a tough field at the Austin Pro Swim, dropping a solid 2:11 in the 200 meter breaststroke. The Cal Physics man, now done with NCAA competition, is loving the pro life. The culture for a pro isn’t much different at Cal. Josh says he lifts weights earlier. That’s about it.  Business-wise Josh is doing well, signing with adidas swim, a massive company currently picking up a lot of swim talent around the globe.

Josh and Jacob Pebley are the latest Cal members of the Pro Crew, the next generation in a program with a long, storied history.  Josh and Jacob are making their way, learning the ropes, and they’ll help heavyweight teammate Ryan Murphy when he makes the transition.

Awesome interview! Thanks, Swimswam! I’m psyched that Prenot is going to try pro swimming for awhile, because I believe there is more improvement possible for him. He’s got such a good head on his shoulders, like all the Cal men who made it to Rio, and the training environment there seems to be achieving VERY positive results.


what a sweetie!!
