Off the Wall: Ian Crocker Keeps Rio 2016 on Table, Ryan Lochte/SNL, Alain Bernard Retirement, Thoughts on Coach/Swimmer Relations and Deckchanging

SEATTLE, Washington, September 25. OFF THE WALL kicks off this week with Nathan Jendrick and Felipe Delgado looking back at comments regarding Ryan Lochte, and the SNL skit parodying the Olympian.

Nathan and Felipe then look into Alain Bernard's career after his retirement, but then get into a deeper conversation regarding techsuits and how they supported swimmers differently.

The duo then transition to a conversation regarding athlete protection policies voted on at the United States Aquatic Sport Convention last week. The two discuss the rejection of a coach/athlete relationship ban, and look into the semi-ban on deckchanging at USA Swimming-sanctioned events.

During the Swim Off One-on-One, Nathan talks with three-time Olympian Ian Crocker in an in-depth interview. This interview begins at 43:13 of the show. Ian and Nathan talk about Crocker's history, his post-swimming career, and his personal life. Crocker explains thoughts on rumored comeback, but doesn't rule out a chance to make a run at Rio 2016.
