HONOLULU, Hawaii, June 6. THROUGHOUT the week in Hawaii at the National Club Swimming Association's All-American meet, Swimming World Radio spoke with each individual swimmer to ask them to introduce themselves to our listeners.
We asked each athlete to provide the following five key bits of information: their Name, Club, Club Coach, Best Event/Stroke and Something Interesting About Them.
First up, we received plenty of different types of answers from the East Women's team coached by Jamey Myers of Southern Crescent Aquatic Club and Matt Sprang of the Gloucester County Institute of Technology.
