Kara Lynn Joyce Facebook Fan Page Interview Trucking Along

PHOENIX, Arizona, October 29. OLYMPIAN Kara Lynn Joyce is not messing around when it comes to the first Swimming World
Facebook Fan Page interview. We started getting the interview structure setup yesterday in advance for the start of the interview today, and Joyce already started answering questions!

Here's some of the questioning already going on over at the Facebook Fan Page:

Andrew Choi
how r u so good at life in swimming
Olivia Ries
What made you want to keep going even when you felt not good at swimming or even that u just shoundnt be swimming?
Jeff Commings
Does being a postgrad still swimming at your alma mater remind you constantly of your great swimming at Georgia?
Kara Lynn Joyce
Andrew, I set goals and work towards them every day, stay focused and have fun!
Kara Lynn Joyce
Jeff, I think no matter where I end up swimming I will always remember the wonderful 4 years I spent representing the Bulldogs! I still love swimming for Jack and helping out the team as much as I can
Kara Lynn Joyce
Olivia, I just try to do my best even when I'm maybe not feeling my best in the water. Those are the days that make you better.
Jn Lau
When sprinting free do you emphasize throwing your hands, arms, or shoulders forward? or all of the above at once? what do you like to lead your stroke with?
Bob Ingram
Hi Kara. Who was the most influential person or persons in your life, and why? What did he/she/they do or what did you admire about them to help you become the person you are today?
Kara Lynn Joyce
Jn, while I think it is important to have speed and a fast turnover, technique is the most important thing you can focus on. For me, rather than just throwing hands, arms, or shoulders, I try to first focus on the perfect hand entry and elbow catch, then try to increase my stroke rate from there!
Kara Lynn Joyce
I could write you pages on that question, Bob! I've been extremely fortunate in my life to have a great support system of family, friends and coaches. My mom coached me for the first 12 years of my career, then I swam for Jon Urbanchek at Michigan, and now I'm with Jack Bauerle here at Georgia. I would say they have all helped to shape me into the swimmer and person I am today. I have been lucky to always have people that believe in me and support me :)

Don't forget to head over to the Facebook Fan Page for the interview taking place the rest of today.
