The Morning Swim Show, April 8, 2011: Justin Zook Looking Forward to Chance to Compete at Third Paralympics

PHOENIX, Arizona, April 8. JUSTIN Zook is one of the athletes competing in this weekend's Can-Am championships, and the Paralympian joins today's edition of The Morning Swim Show to talk about how this year will set him up for a possible trip to his third Paralympics.

Zook describes the seemingly accidental way he became a Paralympic gold medalist and world record holder in the backstroke and why his disability works well with the stroke. He also discusses his work with the U.S. Olympic Committee in bringing former members of the military into the sport.
