PHOENIX, Arizona, August 15. JULIA Wilkinson-Minks joins today’s edition of The Morning Swim Show to put a personal spin on her recent four-part series of articles on swimmingworld.com about preparing mentally and physically to swim more than one race in a session.
Her most infamous moment came at the 2011 world championships, where Wilkinson-Minks placed eighth in the 200 IM less than 10 minutes before swimming in the 100 backstroke semifinal. She gives viewers behind-the-scenes details of what happened in those nine minutes and how she felt mentally incapable of putting together a strong second swim. She also talks about what makes athletes such as Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin and others capable of doing multi-event turnarounds in major meets, including training for such occasions and being immensely talented.
