Missy Franklin Gives Heartfelt Interview After U.S. Nationals Swim Meet

Posted on Jul 31, 2018 1:07:57 PM by SwimLabs in Missy Franklin, in Swimming Community, in freestyle, in olympian, in competitive swimming, in U.S. Swimming National Championships

SwimSwam interviews an emotional Missy Franklin still determined and focused on Tokyo 2020!

As a 5-time Olympic gold medalist who has broken multiple world records during her swimming career, Missy Franklin has had to face the pressure and expectations that go along with being one of the sport's swimming superstars. It was also her first time swimming in a U.S. meet since 2016. She trained and swam hard but finished at a disappointing 17th and 19th place in the 100 (55.33) and 200 free (1:59.25).

In this segment, we ask Master's Swimmer, World Record Holder, and humble SwimLabs Co-Founder, Mike Mann his insight on the sport and swimming news happening around the world!

This Week's Question:

SwimSwam reports -  “The University of Florida has split its men’s and women’s swim & dive programs, promoting former assistants Anthony Nesty and Jeff Poppell to head the men’s and women’s programs, respectively. …The split programs go against the current of NCAA programs, which have seen far more teams combining previously single-gender programs than splitting previously combined programs.”

Mike, can you give us context to this event? Why would a university team decide to split their program?
