Interviews w/ Reezy, Matt Greves, Mary DeScenza, Ous Mellouli, Lacey Nymeyer & more
The year's underway. One Grand Prix competition down and many more to go until World Championships in Rome! After all the great swims I saw Saturday night, I can't wait for the next Grand Prix in Missouri, Feb 13th!
In the vlog above I mentioned meeting Zane Grothe in September for the first time at the American Swimming Coaches Association Convention in Las Vegas. He was just walking around, and he had that look in his eye. Despite being a 16 year old slight slip of guy--tall and very thin--he was absolutely fearless. I really believe he's going to be on the National Team soon representing the USA in the distance freestyle events. 2012 could very well be his Olympic debut. There! I said it! On the record! Check him out for yourself in this swimnetwork interview from September '08.
GOLD MEDAL MINUTE, my new web talk show, is cranking along. I have three more Olympic interviews in the can, and I'm capturing two more today. One is with the only National Team member who has ever gone on to be a minister, and the other is with a multi-Olympic medalist, a huge star. The next episode will be with B.J. Bedford (Miller), who is animated and always fun. NBC Sports said just following her around was like capturing a sitcom.
Don't miss my swimnetwork interviews from the Grand Prix, 7 total. Two have posted already:
