PHOENIX, Arizona, March 17. TODAY'S live edition of The Morning Swim Show featured an interview with musicians who wrote a song devoted to Katie Hoff and an Olympian whose injuries allowed her only one year of college competition.
In case you missed our live show (airing each weekday at 10:30 a.m. MST), you can watch the video below and see host Peter Busch's analysis of the world record set in Great Britain and the controversy involving the world record swim in Australia. Busch talked with Justin Pollard and Eric Dunichase, who co-wrote the song "My Fantasy Girlfriend" about Katie Hoff. Pollard and Dunipace talked about the writing process and why they picked Hoff as their subject.
In 1991, Beth Barr won her only individual NCAA title, winning the 200 back her freshman year at the University of Texas. Barr talked about the emotions on the team leading up to that swim and how her injuries kept her from continuing to swim at Texas, as well as how she's able to swim Masters today and deal with injury.
