Prior to day two prelims of the Indianapolis stop of the 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series, Blake Pieroni had not swum a long course race since last summer’s World Championships in Budapest, Hungary. The break didn’t seem to phase Pieroni, however, as he charged to second in the men’s 100 free in his first meet as a professional swimmer.

Following the 2018 Men’s NCAA Division I Championships, Pieroni took some time off to get his wisdom teeth out (and get sick), but noted that he got back into training really easily and that his training has been going really well.

Currently, Pieroni is not making any plans to make any lifestyle changes despite his new title of professional, noting that “it doesn’t really feel any different.” Instead, Pieroni will continue to train with the Hoosiers and continues to be excited to watch the NCAA team improve and put together a run towards a National title.

Pieroni also talked about training with Zane Grothe, Zach Apple, Marwan El Kamash, and Mohammed Samy.
