Alexander Dale Oen: The Final Interview -- May 1, 2012

PHOENIX, Arizona, May 1. IN his last interview with Swimming World -- and what is believed to be his final interview ever -- Alexander Dale Oen talked with Jeff Commings last week from his altitude training camp in Flagstaff, Ariz., where had trained many times before.

Originally, this interview was set to be live tomorrow for The Morning Swim Show, but with today's news of his untimely death, we are bringing this final interview to you a few hours early. Dale Oen was set to race the best in the world in the 100 breast, the event in which he won the world championship title in 2011 and was considered a gold medal favorite at the London. He also talked about growing up in Norway and how much he followed his competition throughout the year. Be sure to visit SwimmingWorld.TV for more video interviews.
