AUSTIN, Texas, January 20. NATALIE Coughlin didn’t have the 100 free race she wanted at the Arena Grand Prix stop in Austin, and wasn’t feeling her best before the start of the 50 free final. But a huge cheer from the crowd gave her the boost she needed to get the win.

In this video interview, she talks about correcting her head position in the 50 free to allow her to hold her speed better, something she did not do well in the 100 free. She also talks about the 15 days she spent at the Olympic Training Center, a long period of training from which she’ll take valuable lessons.
