Jordan Wilimovsky talked to the media on Monday night at the 2018 Golden Goggles Awards show in New York City at his second Golden Goggles appearance. Wilimovsky revealed to us that it took him less time to get ready for the event than it does for him to swim a mile.

Wilimovsky also said this was his first time in New York so he had to get his hands on some New York Pizza, which he enjoyed.

Wilimovsky is coming off a summer where he made his return to pool swimming for Team USA, winning the Pan Pac title in the 1500, and collecting another medal in the 800.

Wilimovsky was up for the Male Athlete of the Year award, which ultimately went to Ryan Murphy.

Wilimovsky was also featured in Swimming World’s November 2018 issue as the Male Open Water Swimmer of the Year.

Olympian Jordan Wilimovsky was Team USA’s most decorated male performer at the 2018 Pan Pacific Championships in terms of individual medals, as he claimed two gold and one silver. In the pool, Wilimovsky raced to gold in the 1500m freestyle in 14:46.93 and silver in the 800m free in 7:45.19. Just two days later, he came back to win the men’s 10K gold medal at Hojo Beach by 6 seconds in 1:58:50.5. He also added U.S. national titles in the 10K and 1500m free earlier in 2018.

While talking with Coach Schroeder I got to watch Wilimovsky practice and his training was intense. So happy to see this guy achieved all that he has done. Looking at his performances from his freshman year through his senior year is remarkable. Congratulations Jordan, looking forward to watching more successful races from you.
