Morning Swim Show: Mike Hoppe on Guiding Winn Aung to Age Group Record


PHOENIX, Arizona, May 23. MIKE Hoppe, the coach behind Winn Aung's recent national age group national record joins today's edition of The Morning Swim Show.

Hoppe joined the coaching staff at Redding Swim Team about a year ago, and he said he saw a driven and competitive athlete in Winn Aung, though he and others were surprised that the 10-year-old dropped four seconds to set the national record. Hoppe also talks about the significance of breaking the record, and the small window Winn has to break more records before turning 11. Hoppe details his coaching background, which included a recent sabbatical on a tree farm and a stint coaching in the Virgin Islands. Be sure to visit SwimmingWorld.TV for more video interviews.
