Cody Miller will make his Olympic debut this summer in the 100 breaststroke. He enters the Games with the world’s fourth best time this year. At last summer’s World Championships, Miller finished ninth in the event.

Miller talked about the Olympic dream and the distinction that comes with being among the best in your sport. He spoke about how inspirational professional swimmers like Josh Davis were to him when he was young. The 24 year old also reflected on finding out he was Indiana University’s first American swimmer in 40 years.

    First IU American Okympian since Jim Montgomery (1976)

    Montgomery had a pretty good Okympics@ Mintreal, all things considered, winnings the 100 free gold in 49.99 to become first swimmer sub- 50.9; and also swimming on a pair of go,d- medal winning/world record- setting relays (4x 100 free, 40 MR)

    That medley relay team had four individual gold medalists on it ( John Naber, backstroke; John Henken, breaststroke; Matt Zvogel, butterfly; and Montgomery on the anchor. Babette and Montgomery had servers in 100-200 back/ 109 free; and Zhenjel and Zvogel had won their respective 100 races in what were then hustory’s second- fadtest performances.
    And…with a little bit of luck Uncle Sam’smen void for the same @ ZRio next week. Murph wind 100 back, Cordes follows suit in 100 breast, the GOAT’ll will four pest in the 100 fly and Nathan will retain his 100 free title in a world- record 468.

    Hey, piece of cake. Nuthin’ to it but to DO IT!
