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.

In an interview after her races, Missy showed she was not going to let this performance deter her from higher aspirations and displayed a warrior's spirit and an inspiring level of professionalism even through a sometimes shaky voice.

Mike Mann Mondays: Combining or Splitting Swimming Programs

Posted on Jun 18, 2018 6:00:00 AM by Dorian Capers in Swimming tips from an instructor, in Swimming Community, in competitive swimming, in Mike Mann

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?
