Earlier this year Shirley Babashoff sat down with Swimming World’s publisher Brent Rutemiller for an exclusive interview about the 1976 Montreal Olympics and the East German women swimmers.
Watch the full interview here:
Rutemiller touched on a lot of subjects including Babashoff’s place in history, The Last Gold Documentary, forgiving the East German women, possible legal action against the IOC, redistributing medals, ways to improve the IOC’s image, Lilly King and the Russians, and her book – Making Waves. The interview is full of candid and unfiltered remarks that still define the golden girl of the 70’s and her yet to be defined place in the record books.
