Olympian inspires young swimmer
A: Michael Phelps because he did so much at the Olympics. He did something that has never been done before, and to do that, you have to try really hard in practice and everything you do. And that’s really how I want to be.
Q: Who inspires you the most?
A: My coach. He pushes all of us to go really hard, and he’s just a great person to know.
Q: What are your goals for this season?
A: I’m looking at under 4:35 in the 500.
Q: How have your coaches made you a better swimmer?
A: One coach likes to focus on the technicality of your swimming, while another likes to focus on the endurance aspect of swimming.
Q: What are your hobbies and interests?
A: I like to read, and I also like to look up stuff on the Internet, like most people.
