Here is an excerpt for the interview:
Q: How about the team? Gauge its performance.
A:The team did amazing. I was happy with the finish. Of course, any team would have loved to win the competition. However, we still out-performed most of the other teams there in the water and that’s something we can take a lot of confidence from going into next year.
Q: How has your swimming progressed over the past year? What have you been working on?
A: My swimming has progressed with a few stroke changes and a lot of strength gains. We do a lot of work in the weight room and that has transitioned well to the pool.
Q: How is school going?
A: School is going fine. I am just finishing up a lot of the prerequisites for my public health major. Classes are fine, I am happy to be back in a routine without any interruptions. I will probably graduate in a year-and-a-half or two years. It depends on how much summer school I do. After graduation I will probably try to qualify for the 2012 Olympics and after that, who knows?
