Canadian Star Summer McIntosh Joins Unfiltered Waters Podcast For Wide-Ranging Discussion

McIntosh is expected to be one of the headliners at this summer’s Olympic Games in Paris, with medal opportunities in multiple individual events. McIntosh is the world-record holder in the 400-meter individual medley and a world champion in that event, along with the 200 butterfly. The Canadian teenager is also a former world-record holder in the 400 freestyle, and she is the first international athlete to appear on Unfiltered Waters.

Of course, the interview with McIntosh focuses on her Olympic aspirations and how she is preparing for the upcoming Games in the French capital. Not surprisingly, though, Hoff and Franklin do a phenomenal job digging deeper than what McIntosh has accomplished in the pool. They discuss her family support, the McIntosh sporting lineage and how she emphasizes finding balance in her life. McIntosh also expresses her appreciation for the opportunity to represent Canada on the international stage.

Hoff and Franklin also explore McIntosh’s respectful rivalry with Australian Ariarne Titmus and American Katie Ledecky in the middle-distance freestyle events.
