AUSTIN, Texas, January 18. EVERY Saturday, swimmers Yannick Agnel and Gabriel Souza rename the day "Cat-urday" and wear an article of clothing that features a furry feline. Today at the Arena Grand Prix in Austin, the two talked with Swimming World about their weekly tradition, including what intrigues them about cats.

In this video interview, it would appear that Agnel started the tradition and explains what he likes most about the behavior of cats. Their personality applies to Agnel in some ways, he says, even in his approach to racing.

On a slightly more serious note, Agnel talks about his speedy swim in tonight's 200 freestyle final, and the advice coach Bob Bowman gave him before the race.
