SAN ANTONIO – Laura Sogar only raced for one day at the Arena Pro Swim Series in Austin, Texas, finding her way back to competition shape after undergoing major surgery. In this video interview from the Arena photo shoot at the ISD Natatorium in San Antonio, she discusses the sports hernia surgery she needed to have and how it had been affecting her breaststroke kick over the summer.

Sogar said she still has some work to do to get to 100 percent, but she feels confident that the progression so far will yield good results this summer.

As with many professional swimmer, Sogar is learning to transition to life as a postgrad swimmer. She’s finding that it’s “more personal” and is adjusting to new schedules and priorities.
